The collecting, cutting, and polishing of minerals is one of the largest and fastest-growing hobbies in the world. In spite of the wide popularity of this activity and the generations of scientific study devoted to mineralogy, there is no known formula for determining the best example of a particular mineral species. Rare and valuable specimens of legendary beauty are scattered in collections around the world. Some are in museums, where they may be enjoyed by those people lucky enough to be able to travel to see them; others are in private hands and are seldom seen by the public.
