Can people make money off of rocks?

People can make money from rocks, but they are not as valuable as minerals. Many people tend to confuse the two. A rock is a common stone such as limestone, sandstone, marble, granite, and slate. These materials are more commonly used as building or "facing" materials. Minerals consist of such stones as quartz and its other cryptocrystalline forms such as agates, Carnelian, and Jaspers. These, along with many other types of stones, are all called 'Semi-precious' gems. Then, there are the stones like Rubies, Garnets, Amethysts, Emeralds, and, of course, diamonds. These are considered to be 'precious' gemstones. So, yes, a person could be a construction worker or mason, and make a lot of money by using 'rocks' as building materials, but it's better to be a "Gemologist" and make tons of money from what are known as "semi-precious" and "precious" jewels.

Rocks such as sandstone which are formed from particles of other rocks are?
