The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of Scientific American. Each of us, at times, can be a procrastinator, putting off something that is hard to do or that we don’t want to do. But three researchers at Pennsylvania State University think we humans may also be precrastinators—hurrying to get something done so we can cross it off our mental to-do list, even if the rush ends up being wasteful. The researchers also claim to have coined the term “precrastination.” Psychology professor David Rosenbaum and his two collaborators reached their conclusion after asking 257 students to complete a bucket challenge.
All About Gemstones: Semiprecious Gems The line between what constitutes a "precious" or "semiprecious" gemstone has more to do with historical context than any objective measure of its current value. Historically, the so-called "precious" or "cardinal gems" included diamond, emerald, ruby and sapphire, but also included amethyst which today is both abundant, and inexpensive. Other than the historic, ceremonial, or religious significance of labeling a gem as "precious," or "semiprecious," there is no actual difference between these designations, and their use can be misleading, inappropriate, and inaccurate. In fact, some of the stones in this category might very well be considered "precious," due to their increasing scarcity, high price, or changing consumer tastes. Therefore, inclusion or omission of a particular gemstone/mineral in the "precious" or "semiprecious" category should neither diminish, nor enhance a stone's prestige or monetary value.
