Rocks and Minerals

We use some relatively unusual minerals and rocks in our creations and sometimes joke that "we are more about geology than jewelry." Part of our mission is to bring nature's fabulous treasures up-front-and-center by featuring them in highly visible adornments. If you are curious about the chemical composition, hardness, sources, and other interesting facts about them, please read more below.
