Gems

Gemstones are minerals or rocks that have been cut and polished for use in jewellery. Only 70 of the more than 3,800 known minerals are considered gemstones. Glenbow Museum has a wide variety of these, both in cut and uncut forms, including tourmaline, topaz, diamonds, amethyst, citrine, opal and varieties of corundum (sapphires and rubies).
