Speaking generally, a gemstone is a stone that is beautiful, rare and durable (resistant to abrasion, fracturing and chemical reaction). The gemstones are

naturally occurring inorganic crystalline elements or compounds with definite chemical compositions and physical Proprieties. Out of more than 3,000 identified minerals, less 100 are used as gemstones.

This number also includes many gemstones, which do not conform to the strict definition of “minerals”, e.g., pearl and coral, jade, agate etc. Gemology is the science and study of these gemstones, including their source, description, origin, identification, grading, and appraisal that may be useful to mankind.

 

Cutting, polishing gemstones and their use in jewellery has long tradition in the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent since the Indus Valley civilization 5,000 years ago. Middle miss is reported to have recognized aquamarine in Shigar of Skardu area as far back as 1915. In 1951, Geological Survey of Pakistan (GSP) first reported the presence of Corundum, Ruby, Aquamarine and Emerald in the GB of Pakistan. Since then a large number of new findings and discoveries of gemstones have been made, thus placing Pakistan on the gemstone map of the world.

 

It is noteworthy that all gemstone deposits of Pakistan, with some rare exception, occur in Karakoram,

 

Hindu Kush and the Himalayan regions of the country.
