About This Quiz

From ancient civilizations to treating ourselves, gemstones have always been used to adorn our bodies. They have also been used in healing and sacred ceremonies around the world. If your personality could be summed up in one gemstone, which one would it be? 

When you think of yourself, do you think of yourself as being brilliant or do you think of yourself as being deep? By the time we get to know your personality a little better, we'll look at the uses for gemstones and the beliefs held around them to determine which one you are most like. Will it be something as alluring as an opal or as regal as a sapphire? The way you answer our questions will lead the way to finding out. 

You might have the loving emotions tied to rubies, but you might also carry the serene traits of a sapphire. As we go through our questions, your personal traits will be compared to the legacies of gemstones around the world. Once we've finished getting to know you the best we can without having lunch together, we'll let you know which gemstone resembles your personality the most. A ruby? A sapphire? An opal? Or something else?
