Abstract
Gem stones reported from South Carolina, from the northwestern part of the State, include beryl (aquamarine, emerald, yellow beryl), corundum (sapphire), diamond, garnet, quartz (amethyst, chalcedony, smoky, colorless), petrified wood, sillimanite, topaz, tourmaline, and zircon. In 1959, production of gem stones in South Carolina was limited to small amounts of sillimanite from Oconee County, tourmaline from Spartanburg County, and miscellaneous gem stones from Lexington County. No production was recorded in 1960.
