What is the Meaning of Gemmy?

The term 'gemmy' is sometimes used to describe a mineral that has been cut and polished as a gemstone.  It tends to describe a stone of an exceptional grade and more often than not one which exhibits a high degree of translucency.

Gemmy may also be used to describe a mineral or crystal that's exceptionally transparent particularly when the feature is not all that common.
