Phenomenal Gemstones Phenomenal gemstones are extremely rare and highly prized; truly one of nature's most impressive creations. Gemstone optical phenomena is a result which varies, due to the way light either interacts or interferes with the structural anatomy of any given gemstone. Light interaction or interference can be seen in the form of reflection, refraction, diffraction, scattering, absorption and transmission. There are many different forms of gemstone phenomena, while some effects are quite common, simple and subtle; some are absolutely astounding and dramatic.
Phenomenal gems make excellent gifts for both novice and veteran gem collectors. Most would expect such exotic gemstones to come with a hefty price tag, but many phenomenal gems are surprisingly very affordable. Some examples of gemstone phenomena and popular gem types known to exhibit phenomenal qualities include adularescence, aventurescence, chatoyancy, asterism, iridescence, labradorescence, color change, play of color, pleochroism, fluorescence and tenebrescence.
