Difference between precious and semi-precious stones

In classical terms, the designation "precious" refers only to diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, which have long been considered the most valuable gemstones. Gemstone mining and cutting have evolved. Many stones previously considered semi-precious are now recognized as having very rare and exceptional forms, thereby rendering the terms "precious" and "semi-precious" misleading or obsolete. We make abundant use of any and all beautiful materials that inspire us.
