Edit:

A jewel glinting in the sand
On a darkened beach in a distant land.
A sign for some, for others a gem
To garnish the tomes of learned men.
Maker of many save but two;
Oldest of old, I’m totally new.
Destroyer, creator of all that you see,
Will you lend a name to me?


Spoiler for An idea that's most likely wrong...

Well, well . . . a bit of a stumper. Sorry Grayven. Eloquent stab but missed the mark.
Spoiler for help

Upon some belated research I noticed that one key line in the riddle can be misleading. Here's an updated version:

A jewel glinting in the sand
On a darkened beach in a distant land.
An omen for some, for others gem
To garnish the tomes of learned men.
Maker of most save but a few;
Oldest of old and totally new.
Destroyer, creator of all that you see,
Will you lend a name to me?
