    I don’t like amethyst, and it happens to be my birthstone.

    @stefanielovesjamie:  Holy moly! There are SO many! I think Tourmaline is it.

    I am really not a fan of citrine or topaz. I don’t like the orange. 

    Opal doesn’t do it for me either, but I love pearl. Go figure. (I think I’m biased here, though, my FI’s ex-gf’s cat was named Opal. And my college roommate’s cat was named Pearl. Hmm.)

    For the longest time, my birthstone was my least favorite: citrine/yellow topaz. My favorite is garnet or ruby. Funny thing is, I love the color yellow now and wouldn’t mind wearing it.

    Haha, damn you, citrine. It’s my birthstone and I haaaaaaate it. I have a lot of family born in November and all of us go with the blue topaz instead.

    That said, it can look pretty when cut well. I saw the gem exhibit at The Field Museum in Chicago and loved almost everything.

    I don’t really dislike any (I used to hate my birthstone – garnet – but as I grew older and saw it presented in different ways, I’ve become a lot more fond of it!)

    I chose the alexandrite, because I am not a big fan of the pinky/purple color (I had to google what it was first!). But I do think in the right setting it would still be beautiful.

    My least favorite stone of all time is uraninite (the primary ore of uranium)! Without it, we’d have no Hiroshimas or Nagasakis, no risk of nuclear war, no Chernobyls or Fukushimas to deal with, and no risk of any more “civilian” nuclear disasters either.

    Of that list? It’s hard to say, because if I assume that each piece is a high-quality, untreated piece, in truth each and every one of them would make me drool! Between uraninite and other ores of uranium, synthetics, treated, and some stones not on that list that I just don’t really care for (black onyx for example), I voted “other.”

    @Arshim:  +1 That’s how I describe the color “puke green”. I was early and supposed to be a September baby (as is my mom) so I wear sapphires… but that nasty peridot is my birth stone. My least favorite.

    While I like wearing colors, any colored stones are not for me, so I don’t like any of them. 🙁

    Least fav is amethyst. It really doesn’t do anything for me. Maybe because I always associated it with children’s museum geode gift shop trinkets that made it lose it’s value for me. I even have an amethyst pot holder. It’s a pretty cool pot holder tho!

    Also, lab created stones and super dark sapphires are a no go to me.
