In case you haven't seen my youtube video where I'm presenting his handmade jewellery, you can watch it here:

These necklaces are sooo pretty, they're real (genuine) amber, jasper, crystal, and semi precious stones (gemstones) such as Turquoise and Tiger eye.
What is a gemstone?
A gemstone or gem (also called a precious or semi-precious stone, or jewel) is a piece of attractive mineral, which—when cut and polished—is used to make jewelry or other adornments. However certain rocks, (such as lapis-lazuli) and organic materials (such asamber or jet) are not minerals, but are still used for jewelry, and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their lustre or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone.

Here is a little bit more about Tiger Eye gemstone:
