Abstract: The semantics of the gemstones, their spread in the poetry of Judita Vaičiūnaitė, their associative contexts, created by the relations between the human and natural worlds are analysed in the article. Due to the chosen aspect and searching for the methodological basis for it, the works by French psycho critics, promoting the study of subjective succession of associations and search for repetitive metaphors, were revised. The methodology, being still attractive, gives opportunity to enter the poetic world at a slightly unexpected angle. A lot of gemstones can be found in the works of Judita Vaičiūnaitė - more than twenty names, their usage constituing a system, colouring the most important subjects of her lyrics, sometimes creating unexpected contexts. The spread of the organic (amber, pearls, corals, shells) and inorganic (silver, gold etc.) precious stones (and metals) and their semantic contexts are analysed in the article. How are gemstones important to Judita Vaičiūnaitė? It seems that the poetess is moved by their long-time existence in the human world. The poems show that the poetess didn't tend to exoteric, that she knew the legends of the precious stones and the beliefs connected with them, but didn't overuse them. Especially important is the connection between gemstones and women's everyday life and existence. The colours of the precious stones, shades, shining, nuance the scale of colours of the poetic world, shade human and natural worlds, and connect them with metaphoric links. The abundance of the gemstones makes the poetic world of Judita Vaičiūnaitė more refined; in other words, gemstones make it shine
