A precious stone.[1]

Precious stones were stones that were considered quite valuable; usually because they were quite shiny, due to their crystal-like structure; and they were often used for jewelry.

In the 1970s, the County Museum of Art had a large exhibit of precious stones and the most valuable one in the collection was the Star of Persia.[2]
