    Maybe u miss clicked it by accident and over-exaggerated the situation??? o_O just a guess.

    I don't see the problem, we've never had gems... Unless of course you mean points whereas for those it's a glitch that often happens, they may return back within time if not get them back by playing more games

    Yeah, where did gems come from?

    Where do gems form?
    &
    Where are they found?
    Quick Links

    Gems form in many different environments in the Earth. We will examine the most common and important environments and formation processes in this lecture.
    It is important to distinguish where gems are formed from where they are found.

    Almost all gems are formed below the Earth's surface.

    • Some are brought to the surface through mining
    • Some are brought to the surface through earth processes (faulting, folding, large scale uplift, volcanism). These processes can move rock up from more than 400 km below the surface.
    Formation environments:
    Formation Environments:
    In the following sections we will examine how gems form. We will start with examples at or near the Earth's surface and move down into the mantle. Do you have a way to play the movies properly? If not, click here.
    1. amethyst (quartz); agate ; and the formation of opal. Of these, only opal is non-crystalline (ordered blobs of gel less than a micron in diameter).If the water has interacted with copper-rich rocks, copper minerals will form:
    [​IMG]
    This movie shows formation of agate, amethyst, opal, turquoise, and malachite/azurite. Note the importance of alternating wet periods (when solutions are dilute and can dissolve a large amount of silica, copper, etc.) and dry periods (when solutions evaporate and minerals precipitate).
    Here is some additional explanatory text for this movie!

    [paste:font size="3"]2. emerald), tourmaline need unusual elements, and some of these, like beryllium (for beryl) or boron (for tourmaline) are derived from cooling molten rock (magma).

    [​IMG]
    This process is illustrated in this movie.


    Here is some additional explanation of this movie.


    [paste:font size="3"]3. beryl form.

    If magmas are rich in boron, tourmaline will crystallize.

    You should note that beryllium and boron are extremely rare elements in most rocks and it is only because the above process efficiently concentrates these unusual elements that crystallization of boron and beryllium-rich minerals can occur.

    More information on pegmatites.

    [​IMG]
    This movie shows formation of crystals such as emeralds and tourmaline in pegmatite bodies associated with cooling intrusive (magmatic) rocks
    Here is some additional information about this movie.

    [paste:font size="3"]4. zircon, topaz, ruby, etc.

    [​IMG]
    This movie shows formation of crystals such as ruby or zircon (pink crystals) and topaz in open cavities (e.g., holes made by gas bubbles) in volcanic rocks.
    [paste:font size="3"]5. jadeite (jade). In extremely rare cases, pressures in metamorphic rocks may be high enough that diamonds form.
    • Regionally metamorphosed rocks: large volumes of rock that are buried and changed in response to increases in pressure and temperature. Minerals found in these rocks might include gems such as garnet and cordierite.
    [​IMG]
    This movie shows metamorphism of rocks resulting from continent-continent collision associated with a subduction zone. Note the formation of large crustals such as garnet in the deformed, heated zone.
    [​IMG]
    This movies illustrates the process of contact metamorphism. This is the process by which the minerals in rocks change in response to proximity to a hot intrusive body. For example, a limestone intruded by a magma undergoes significant change in crystal size, mineral content, and chemistry (due to addition of solutions released from the cooling magma). These rocks contain gems such as garnet.
    [paste:font size="3"]6. peridot). Slabs of mantle material are brought to the surface through tectonic activity and volcanism.
    • Deep mantle gems. Rocks such as kimberlites are erruptive volcanics that come from quite deep in the mantle and carry with them diamonds. Diamonds are made from carbon. The stable form of carbon at the Earth's surface is graphite. High pressures and temperatures are required to convert graphite to diamond. Thus, almost all diamonds formed about 100 miles below the Earth's surface. Dates suggest that their formation was restricted to in the first few billion years of Earth history.

    Rarely, diamonds are formed in very high temperature and pressure metamorphic rocks.

    [​IMG]
    This movie shows that diamonds do not form in the kimberlite magma but are carried up to the surface by the magma.
    [paste:font size="5"]Alluvial Gem Deposits:
    After rock is brought to the surface, gems may be released from the rock by weathering (some minerals dissolve, others are transformed to clay minerals, and some others survive unchanged). The minerals that survive unchanged may be washed into streams, etc., where they are concentrated by river / ocean processes.
    • Gems retrieved from alluvial deposits are often rounded due to rolling around in rivers and oceans.
    • Gems are often those minerals that are resistant to chemical weathering. They are commonly concentrated in stream beds and beach sands in what are known asalluvial deposits.
    • Gems often have quite a high specific gravity (density) compared to other minerals so that they are easily trapped in depressions in stream beds. This causes them to become concentrated and makes it easier to mine them. Other valuable and durable things are also concentrated by these processes. Gold is a well known example.
    In summary, gems are not always found where they were formed, nor are they formed where they're found!
