The Colours of Gemstones
The colour you see in gemstones can be considered as three basic components, namely: hue, saturation, and tone. It is the hue that most people consider as the "colour" of the gemstone, but there are other factors as well. Saturation, for instance, refers to the vividness or brightness of the hue, and the tone describes the hue's lightness or darkness. Within these spectrums, a single gemstone may present itself in a wide variety of hues, colours and tones.
