Thank you, junk mail; you give me such brilliant ideas

A few days ago, I got a massive amount of junk mail. In real life, not the internet, mind you; this was actual, paper junk mail. Among the things I got was a free guide [i.e. piece of paper] to gemstone lore and modern birthstones. Each of the gemstones named has three properties supposedly attributed to it. So, looking at it, I thought, 'Names have three parts to them. Why not make names from the properties?' Which is what I'm going to do. I'm going to reverse search name meanings on BabyNames.com, in order to make up names for each of these gemstones. I will choose the first name that comes up for each gender. That way, there is a female name and a male name. Less bias that way. I will also include a picture of each of the stones, because I like shiny things. So, here we go...
