What does it mean to have a teardrop tattoo not filled in?
The teardrop tattoo or tear tattoo is a symbolic tattoo of a tear that is placed underneath the eye. The teardrop is one of the most widely recognised prison tattoos and has various meanings. Sometimes the exact meaning of the tattoo is only known by the wearer.
What does the first tear out of the right eye mean?
Recently I had a glance at this post from #8Fact on Facebook claiming that when you cry out of happiness, the first tear drop comes from your right eye, when you cry out of pain it comes from your left, and when you are frustrated, tears come from both eyes simultaneously.
A tattoo designed to represent life can incorporate various living elements such as flowers or roses, while those meant to represent death might incorporate skulls, fire, or the grim reaper. To represent Christian life, angels or a cross might be used. A clock tattoo could also symbolize an endless love.
Though it is a gem of winter, the color of ice, Diamond is a crystal of Light; its high frequency energy is dispersed into flashing prisms of brilliant “fire” that typifies the sun. It is a spiritual stone, a symbol of perfection and illumination, activating the Crown and Etheric Chakras.
The stone also attracts abundance, strength, power, courage, fortitude, creativity, imagination, purity, harmony, faithfulness, innocence, increased feelings of self-respect and love, and relationships full of pure love. In fact, diamonds are believed to fill negative spaces in oneself with the purity of love.
When rubbed on the skin, they were also thought to restore youth and vitality. For thousands of years, Ruby was considered the stone of love, energy, passion, power, and a zest for life. Like no other gemstone in the world, Ruby is the perfect symbol for powerful feelings.
Real rubies glow with a deep, vivid, almost "stoplight" red. Fake gems are often dull: they are "light, but not bright." If the gem is more of a dark red, then it may be garnet instead of a ruby. If it is a real ruby, however, know that darker stones are usually worth more than lighter stones.
The average price of a ruby gemstone is $1,000 per carat, but the cost of ruby wedding rings can change dramatically according to the quality of the rubies in the rings and the rubies' color, cut, carat, and clarity qualities.
Ed., list a wide range of wholesale prices for faceted gem rubies. Prices are dependent on origin, color, size, and clarity: from a low of $100 to $15,000/ct. Myanmar or Burmese stones in ½ to 1 carat sizes with slightly purplish red color and light inclusions range from $300 to $3,000/ct., for example.
Color is the most significant factor affecting a ruby's value. The finest ruby has a pure, vibrant red to slightly purplish red color. As the color becomes too orangy or more purplish, the ruby moves down the quality scale. The highest-quality rubies have vivid color saturation.
In nature diamonds are rare, but not so in the gem world. Rubies and sapphires are different colored varieties of the mineral corundum. Now corundum is a fairly common mineral. Ranking a 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness (diamond is a 10), corundum has been mined extensively for abrasives.
Prices range from $500 a carat for good colors with some inclusions, to $1,000 to $2,000 for clean larger stones with top color. Demantoid garnet is the rarest and most valuable of the garnets and is one of the rarest of all colored gemstones. It is remarkable for its brilliance and fire.
Most people think of garnets as a red stone with a slightly brownish cast. The two kinds of green garnets called tsavorite and demantoid are rare and consequently more expensive than red garnets. Garnets are hard, durable and brilliant and are valued on carat weight, color, cut and clarity.
Any gemstones that is not a diamond, ruby, emerald or sapphire is a semi-precious gemstone. This guide will reveal details about some of the most popular semi-precious gemstones - garnet, peridot, amethyst, citrine, blue topaz and turquoise.

PEARL is often considered a gemstone, although it is not a mineral. Rather, pearl is a composite of the mineral Aragonite (Calcium Carbonate) and the organic compound conchiolin (a protein). In pearl oysters and freshwater pearl mussels, nacre forms the inner lining of the shell.
Pearls are deposits of calcium carbonate (aragonite, calcite, or both) called nacre. Pearl (nacre) is not a mineral because it does not have a distinctive crystal structure and because it is formed by the action of a living organism. Because pearls have long been used in jewelry, however, they are considered gemstones.
June birthdays claim two birthstones; pearl and Alexandrite. Pearls have been wildly popular in jewelry for centuries because of their natural beauty. Alexandrite gemstones are extremely rare and desirable since they change color based on the lighting.
(Moonstone is also sometimes called “adularia”). Adularescence is caused by the diffraction of light as it hits thin, alternating layers of orthoclase and albite within the gem.
Your month has 3 birthstones – pearl, moonstone, and Alexandrite. Unlike most gemstones that are found within the Earth, pearls have an organic origin. They are created inside the shells of certain species of oysters and clams.
