### Cataclysm Rare Gems Quick Reference Guide

With my feet in a couple heroics, I've found myself turning my attention to the gemming options. I usually like to use the addon Panda for this ingame, but I have no real equivalent when I'm simply browsing otherwise. Hence we now have this browsable gem reference. Rather than limiting it to resto druid gems, I decided to include all gem cuts for browsing convenience with special note of the ones that restoration druids would find to be particularly yummy. Enjoy!
