 Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of theirluster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value
for example:- 'beryl', which is colorless in its pure mineral form, becomes 'emerald' with chromium impurities. If you add manganese instead of chromium, beryl becomes pink 'morganite'. With iron, it becomes 'aquamarine.'
