28 Beyond Beautiful Minerals And Stones Default

Get ready to over indulge on the world’s most beautiful minerals and stones! When you think of gorgeous natural treasures glistening diamonds and deeply colored gemstones often come to mind. Less common minerals are largely forgotten, but as this list proves they most certainly shouldn’t be.
Diamonds are minerals, the hardest naturally occurring mineral known in existence, and some gemstones fall under the mineral category as well. On the other hand, rocks do not have an identifiable chemical composition since they can be made of minerals and non-minerals.
Technically, a mineral is a naturally occurring inorganic solid substance represented by a chemical formula.  Minerals are uniquely beautiful, especially considering there are over 4,900 different types of known minerals. Forget plain blue sapphires and white diamonds, this list represents the most beautiful minerals and stones you have ever seen.

8. Bismuth

Looks like the insides of a fancy computer chip, but Bismuth (Bismuthinite) is a naturally occurring chemical element resulting in a white, crystalline, brittle metal with a pink tint. The dense mineral is soft enough to easily incur scratches but is rather dense.
