Animal Crossing New Leaf

Gem rock information;

In Animal Crossing New Leaf there is a new feature called the ‘gem rock’ - it’s like the money rock. As in, each day a new rock will appear and if you hit it with your shovel a gem (ore) will appear. However unlike the money rock, the gem rock randomly spawns for that day, and isn’t one of the stationary, permanent rocks in your town.
There are 6 types of gems you can obtain from this method;
Ruby (red) - sells for 2,000 bells
Sapphire (blue) - sells for 2,000 bells 
Emerald (green) - sells for 2,000 bells 
Amethyst (pink/purple) - sells for 2,000 bells
Silver (gray) - sells for 3,000 bells 
Gold (yellow) - sells for 4,000 bells 

Typically, you’ll only be able to obtain one gem per day, but once you unlock the museum shop and buy the silver shovel (available for purchase after you have donated 30 fossils) - instead of getting a money rock, if you hit rocks with the silver shovel, you’ll eventually find that instead of giving you bells, you’ll get gems.

Gems can be used for aesthetic purposes, sold for bells, used to make gold furniture (explained here), jazz up your piggy bank, or even your furniture - this is further explained in the R. Parkers post 
NB: not all furniture series can be customized via gems
