Here Are Some Of The Most Surreal Gems On Earth, #18 Looks Like It Came From Another World.

We normally see precious gems and stones in the context of jewelry. And while they look incredible as earrings, rings, and necklaces, there's something even more beautiful about them in their true, raw form.

When it comes to gems like this, most of them form in the mantle of the Earth, but are mined in the crust. As you may know, the crust of the Earth is made from igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rock.
