Lapidaries, i.e. treatises on the ‘virtues’ of precious and semi-precious stones, circulated throughout medieval and Renaissance Europe. Some writers dealt only with their supposed curative properties; others said they had a moral influence too, for example that amethyst prevents drunkenness, and sapphire cures anger and stupidity; the majority also listed magical powers, for example detecting poison, driving demons away, ensuring the favour of princes, etc. The power of the jewel could be enhanced by engraving it with planetary or zodiacal symbols, or with religious formulas such as Hebrew titles for God, names of angels, acronyms representing Scriptural phrases, etc. Many surviving medieval and Elizabethan rings and pendants prove that these principles were put into practice by those who could afford to do so. Those who could not, nevertheless knew about them at second hand, through popular manuals of magic such as The Secrets of Albertus Magnus, of the Vertues of Herbes, Stones, and certaine Beasts (1637). Unrelated but analogous beliefs have arisen in the 20th century, first as regards the luck of birthstones, and more recently as regards the healing properties and spiritual symbolism of crystals.

gem
Mineral valuable by virtue of its durability (hardness), rarity, and beauty, cut and polished for ornamental use, or engraved. Of 120 minerals known to have been used as gemstones, only about 25 are in common use in jewellery today; of these, the diamond, emerald, ruby, and sapphire are classified as precious, and all the others semi-precious; for example, the topaz, amethyst, opal, and aquamarine. Among the synthetic precious stones to have been successfully produced are rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds (first produced by General Electric in the USA in 1955). Pearls are not technically gems. With the exception of the diamond, most stones are valued for their colour. However, this is often due to the presence of an impurity, and not a property of the mineral itself. For example, rubies are formed when the mineral corundum contains small amounts of chromium, whereas sapphires are formed when small amounts of iron and titanium oxides are present. The most common impurities are probably compounds of iron, manganese, and copper. Exposure to light makes some gems change or lose their colour altogether; certain types of turquoise and topaz are particularly liable to do this.
