Black OpalThe rarest of all opals and more expensive than black diamonds. This stunning gemstone is filled with fire and color. This gemstone comes from Australia, and October babies sparkle and shine in opal.
Black DiamondThe second most expensive gemstone. Since the diamond starts as a black stone, you would think there would be more of them, but there are not. They hail from Brazil and the Central African Republic. Like any other diamond, they are the birthstone of the April child.
Black BerylThe more pure a piece of beryl is, the clearer it is, so a black beryl is filled with impurities. They come from Madagascar and Mozambique, and even though they are not as rare as a red beryl, they are still very rare.
Black PearlBlack pearls are known as Tahitian pearls, and they are rare. My grandmother went to Hawaii one year and opened an oyster. She got a pair of pearls. One was white and one was black. It was a beautiful stone. The oyster may not have felt the same way. February and November lay claim to the pearl as one of their birthstones.
Black SapphireThe same stone that gives us the ruby is called a sapphire when it is any other color than red. The traditional sapphire is a blue stone, but a black sapphire is not unheard of. These stunning stones are translucent with a six star shine throughout them that is beautiful. The sapphire is the birthstone of the September child.
While all of these hard to find stones are equally gorgeous, there are plenty of more common black gemstones that can be found in today’s jewelry design. The black garnet, zircon and onyx are more readily available. Additionally, designers like to use tourmaline, spinel, moonstone, obsidian (the cabin I lived in was called Obsidian Point because the ground was filled with arrowheads made from the abundance of lava from volcanoes), jasper, hematite and jet.
