Organic gemstones refer to a special group of natural materials that are unique in how they are formed. They are organic materials that have been mineralized – where organic material is replaced and infilled by chalcedony, opal, calcite, aragonite, pyrite or other mineral material over millions of years.
The similarity among organic gemstones such as Baltic Amber and Dinosaur Gembone is that they’re typically softer than their mineral cousins. But organic gemstones are among the oldest materials used in ceremony and ornamentation by humans dating all the way back to the Stone Age.
