Dreaming about Gemstones

Sometimes he’s in the back of a pick up truck picking them up and removing the dirt. Sometimes the gemstones are growing and multiplying as he’s picking them up. Sometimes they are all one color and sometimes they’re several colors.
The reoccurring elements however are: he’s picking up gemstones.
In Exodus gems are labeled as stones used for the placement in the ephod and the breastplate for the priests. “The stones were corresponding to the names of the sons of Israel; they were twelve, corresponding to their names, engraved with the engravings of a signet, each with its name for the twelve tribes.” Ex. 39:14
In 1 Kings, Solomon ordered costly stones to build the tabernacle.
‘Then the king commanded, and they quarried great stones, costly stones, to lay the foundation of the house with cut stones.” 1 Kings 5:17
In 1 Kings 10:10 “The Queen of Sheba brought precious stones to King Solomon. She gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and a very great amount of spices and precious stones.”
Zech. 9:16 “And the LORD their God will save them in that day As the flock of His people; For they are as the stones of a crown, Sparkling in His land. ”
In all these verses, gems hold value. They are precious. They have names. You could also say that people hold value, are precious and each of us has a name.
