YOUR pIECE OF EARTH


Every gem is a piece of art made by nature.  I searched over mountains and under the seas to find the long lost twins of nature and give you that opportunity to own a piece of Earth. How can one gemstone impersonate a natural scenery so well?...may be not a coincidence after all..?


Dallol

Dallol is a landscape in Ethiopia consisting of green acid ponds. These ponds are hot springs that release several minerals and active live halophile algae which give the ponds their colors. 

Agate was the chosen gemstone for the Dallol scenery. It portrays the ponds nicely with its framed opaque shell, preserving a translucent glassy feel on the inside.

Dongchuan

Off we go to China, where we find the Dongchuan red lands. With soils highly rich in minerals, particularly copper, the land turns into picturesque red valleys before new crops are planted.

The Gem-ini of the Dongchuan lands is the gemstone Unakite. It has quite a unique distribution of colors that is just as segmented as the Dongchuan fields.

Hutt Lagoon

Hutt Lagoon is a salt lake in Australia that flaunts a pink color that is created by the carotenoid-producing algea. Salt concentric ripples are seen at the shore of the lake.

Rhodochrosite comes to accentuate those concentric ripples. The gem has a unique pattern that captures the delicate arcs of salted sands.

Pamukkale

Pamukkale is a series of steps of hot springs that have bubbled up from the ground. Pammukkale is situated in Turkey and it translates into "Cotton Castle". The frothy-looking limestone steps vary in depth creating the varying intensities of sky-blue. 

The selected gemstone for this mesmerizing scenery is Larimar. It traces the organic white contours of the limestone gracefully while enclosing the beautiful blue gradients of the pools.

Aurora

Auroras are light emissions of varying color and complexity that happen at the the Earth's poles. A striking display of diffused glow paints the sky like a canvas of jewel tones.

Just like Auroras, Fluorite the gem has an exquisite natural display of colors and has been dubbed "The most colorful mineral in the world".  Fluorite nicely mimics the Aurora through the diffused intermingling bands of colors throughout the gem.
