Mine is Topaz and I fucking hate all yellow gems. I’m all about indigo/deep purple ones.

Wow some of the responses in here, so rude, can we refrain from calling things cheap and tacky? I’ve never been a huge fan of colored stones for myself, peridot is my birthstone and that’s definitely my least favorite. I love most white stones, color just isn’t for me, I drool over them on other people though.

Browns, lime greens, oranges, and yellows just don’t do it for me personally.

I dont think there is any gem stone I hate, I love colour and the unusual. What I dont like is when a gemstone is poorly cut or just not great quality so that it looks cloudy, unless its something like a caboochon.

I cant stand cubic zirconia! Cheap man-made stone. I also don’t like black diamonds  due to their looking so opaque and not  sparkly.

i’m really not a fan of all opaque stones, and i HATE compound (?) ones – not sure if that’s how they’re called, they’re made of pressed powder from rubies, sapphires etc, or pieces of stone joint together with colored glass.

This is a really old thread that’s making not so nice comments about stones that many bees have. I’m going to close this now.
