I've just found it, I didn't read all the articles yet, but this is amazing.
It take a lot of references from ancient writers, and talks a lot about legends and lore. You will also find history of different stones, ancient magic uses, history associated to gems, and a lot of articles. YOU CAN'T MISS THIS!

Hahahaha! You both are right! I'm printing a lot too, and I only will leave this sit to go to work!!!!!
I was looking the other volumes too. Awesome! They talk about technical aspects of stones, and history (and myths) of jewelry!

Fantastic site! Thanks very much for sharing it. I know I'll be bookmarking it as a very useful reference page.

(And I'm also chuffed that one of the pages assigns the Ruby as the December birthstone... a beautiful stone. Always felt a bit fed up with zircons and turquoise - even if they ARE more affordable!)

Yes, that's right! I'm surprised too. This site has a lot of references to very, very old sources... I've also found that Emerald is the Sagittarius stone, according to ancient Spanish believes, inspired on Arab's traditions...
