About This Quiz

Over the years, people have associated a number of characteristics with each of the more popular gemstones. These connections have gained traction over time, and it's now fairly common to have some immediate associations when we bring up a gem like a ruby or a topaz. We'll take these commonly held traits and pair you up with the one that reflects your personality most closely.

For example, if we discover that you are a bit of a homebody and someone who tends to view things in a very practical way, the emerald is going to jump to the top of our list for you. Should you also tell us that you're an excellent cook and you spend a lot of time creating a safe and cozy home environment, we'll be almost completely sure that this is the gem for you.

However, maybe you're a little more adventurous than that. If you're passionate about life and you've got a bunch of different projects going on at the same time, the fiery sapphire could be the one that we've been looking for. When you point out that you also love to travel and most of your intimate relationships have been short, but very exciting, then it sure seems like we're getting warm.

Let's go dig up some treasures.
