Difference between gem and semi precious stones

The semi-precious stones can be specifically divided into: quartz gems and non-quartz gems. Among the quartz gems, crystal is the most important and the most diverse gem. The rest include tourmaline, aquamarine, peridot, amethyst, garnet, agate, etc.; non-quartz gems include amber and coral.
It should be noted that, the general classification principle is mainly based on the hardness and price of gemstones. That is to say, the more precious the gemstones are, the higher the hardness and rarer the gemstones are. However, in fact, many precious semi precious stones are also priced according to carat, such as tourmaline, hair crystal, ghost crystal, etc., so it depends on the actual situation.
