OUR ORGANIC GEMS

 Honey, Brown and Dark Brown Baltic Amber: Alignment & Radiance - The most typical colours of Amber. The lightness of these stones depends on the concentration of naturally occurring gas bubbles in the resin; Honey Amber has the smallest concentration, and Dark Brown the highest. All real Ambers will vary slightly in colour due to concentration of gas and even other organic materials fossilised in the resin.



 Green Baltic Amber: This colour accounts for about 2% of all Amber found naturally and gets its hue from having spent at least part of its long life in a marshy environment. In many cultures throughout history people have believed that this green hue of Amber has the power to bring good luck and immortality to its wearer. 



 Black Baltic Amber: Black Amber accounts for roughly 15% of all Amber found naturally and is a very special amber. Held up to the sun, the true nature of this amber is revealed in a deep dark cherry red colour that appears black to the naked eye.

Held up to the sun, the true nature of this amber is revealed. A deep dark cherry red colour that appears black to the naked eye, reminding us not to judge a book by its cover and that there is always another layer to things if you look hard enough. 

 All of our amber is raw amber, in its original state and has not been heated, treated or altered in any way. Baltic Amber is often thought of as a great healer, cleanser and transformer by absorbing negative or stagnant energy. Amber mined from the Baltic region of Europe is especially sought after as it contains high levels of succinic acid, considered a natural anti-inflammatory substance. Each piece of Amber displays a cascade of different lights and inflections and is truly unique as no two pieces are ever the same. 

 Dinosaur 'Dino' Gembone: Connection and Wisdom - Dino is formed from the petrified remains of dinosaur bones that have been naturally permeated with minerals over thousands of years. The colour of each stone is characteristic of whichever minerals initially became ingrained in the organic remnants; those found in water will differ greatly from those found away from water. Calcite, Agate and or other minerals account for the more vibrant and mix of colours often found in gembone.

Our gembone is sourced from found collections amassed in the 50’s and 60’s. It originates from the Great Basin range in the West of the US and dates from the Morrison Formation during the Upper Jurassic Era. Radiometric dating indicates that the Morrison Formation is between 148 million and 155 million years old.



OUR GEMSTONES

 Jade: Abundance and Prosperity - Highly prized since ancient times for ceremonial and emotional objects, Jade is a stone that helps you connect to the prosperity and abundance which surrounds you. We source our stones from both Russia and South Africa. 



 Lapis Lazuli: Intuition and Harmony - Long used and admired for its intense blue, Lapis Lazuli was first mentioned in the 7th millennium BCE. Most famously, the funeral mask of Tutankhamun was inlaid with Lapis Lazuli. The most important mineral component of lapis lazuli is lazurite and the intense blue colour is due to the presence of the trisulfur radical anion in the crystal. We use Lapis Lazuli ethically sourced from Afghanistan and is between AA and AAA grade quality.



 Mountain (or Rock) Crystal: Clarity and Integration - The transparent variety of the silica mineral quartz has long been valued for its clarity and total lack of colour and flaws. Vessels and spheres have been carved from large crystals since ancient times, and the application of the word crystal to fine glassware derives from this practice. All our Mountain (Rock) Crystal is sourced from Brazil.
