If you see a gem, BUMP IT


A gemstone (also called a gem, fine gem, jewel, precious stone, or (((semi-precious stone))) is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. However, certain rocks (such as lapis lazuli and opal) and occasionally organic materials that are not minerals (such as amber, jet, and pearl) are also used for jewelry and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone.

"In jakking culture, "gem" is used in regard to particularly high quality 'jaks. Gem-worthy 'jaks are to be commended for their value and merit. Complete opposite of "coal".

The quality of a 'jak, and specification of being a gem or coal can be a point of division under the judgement of the 'jakking community. More experimental and avant-garde 'jaks tend to be more divisive in regard to this qualification scale.

The link between gem and coal is not random as some people may think, gems are most of the time shown with a picture of cut blue diamond. Diamonds are made of carbon and are created by extreme heat,pressure during long periods time. The fact that coal too is mostly made of carbon imply that even coal can become gem under specific condition,hard work and long time, and lets not forget that gems true quality and beauty is shown only after they are CUT and POLISHED.

P.S: Gems CANNOT become coals.
