Top 5 Amazing Gem Deposits & How They Formed

Featuring gem history, the science behind the stones, gemstones in pop culture, and much more, you too can become a gemology expert by immersing yourself …


  1. This video about the location of this gemstones come from is very interesting.???? To know how they form and how carefully they have to mine them.?⛏ The conditions of the environment even helps gems grow faster too. Nice review.??

    …Hidden in the mountain store
    Born underground, suckled from a teat of stone
    Raised in the dark, the safety of our mountain home
    Skin made of iron, steel in our bones
    To dig and dig makes us free
    Come on brothers sing with me!

  3. there is a certain mine in Quebec, Canada which i find quite important. but bc it wasn't mentioned here i'll "mention" it (write a literal novel about it and the many minerals discovered in it) in the comments.

    the Poudrette quarry (De-Mix quarry) is a rich mine located in Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada. it is rich for 2 reasons:
    -an abundance of minerals, specifically 433, many of which not gem-quality, and the occasional gemmy material like serandite or poudretteite. out of those 433 minerals, the quarry is a type locality for 71 of them
    -and for having a whopping 49 different elements from the periodic table can be found there. think about it. that is WAY more than a THIRD of the periodic table.
    almost all of those elements (if not all) go into forming minerals. that is insane!

    since the mine is SO rich and rare mineral specimens come out of it, it is obviously very popular for collectors. GORGEOUS specimens of catapleiite, carletonite, serandite, poudretteite, elpidite, natrolite, aegirine, and so many others come from that mine since it is so rich. it is simply a geological and gemological wonder.

    on another note: coming home from sküle and having a fresh JTV video, along with being able to nerd out about gems are simply the best things ever
