The Mineral and Gemstone Kingdom is a free informational and educational guide to rocks, minerals, gemstones, and jewelry. This site provides detailed information and excellent photos of each mineral and gemstone cataloged in our database. The site has just been completely redesigned with a brand new interactive interface in addition to new and updated information.

This site is a work in progress. Although hundreds of minerals and photos are already provided on the website, many important ones are still missing. Several significant gemstones and gemstone photos are also not yet indexed. We hope to catalog all the important minerals and gemstones, so please bear with us as we work to add new content. Your feedback on the new design and content is also important to us, so please contact us with any ideas or suggestions!
