Abstract: The glittering sight of a precious stone has always attracted the human eye, an attraction which is more profound than the stone's color and obvious beauty, an attraction which lies in the durability of the stone itself. Spring storms come and quickly go; summer suns rise then fade into night; yet the brilliant quality of a precious stone has endured in ages past and will continue to do so. It is the realization of this durability and permanence amidst changeability that lends charm to the stone.
