What does "semi-precious" mean and what is a crystal vs. mineral vs. gemstone?

Minerals are naturally made materials from the earth that have a specific structure and makeup. A gemstone or gem is made FROM minerals. Specifically, minerals that are typically crystal shaped (i.e. quartz). Once these mineral crystals are sanded down and made into different shapes, they are called gemstones/gems.

All stones EXCEPT diamond, emerald, sapphire, or ruby are semi-precious stones.
