The stones in this list are a mixture of minerals or mineraloids, and therefore differ from most precious gemstones in that they lack purity or they are merely rough, uncut stones. Most stones can be found anywhere in Elanthia. The term, "stone" is a generic term, and the list below are merely gems that carry the noun.
