gemas


Explanation:
To say that something is extremely valuable, precious and unique we use "gemas" in Spanish.

As in,

"Ese profesor de física cuántica es una verdadera gema para esta universidad.".

JOYAS


Explanation:
Hi Lilian!
I do a lot of "tourism" translation work for the Mexican government and constantly find the term "Joyas Arqueológicas". I agree with Bea0 that your text seems a little strange and I don't envy you having to that job if it's written like that. To "try" to translate it for you [this will include some guesswork :-)]:

"El país centroamericano posee un rico [ó, abundante] sistema de parques nacionales que incluye joyas como...."
..and ends there for lack of further context.

Good luck with that job and I hope this helps somewhat:-)
