Our gemstone pendants cut from mostly self collected natural semi precious crystals and minerals. Local Canadian Rocky mountain gems from far up the arctic circle to the south point of Vancouver island. We also buy and trade interesting specimen with worldwide partners. The handmade jewelry, what you find in the store, available to purchase. Some stones are drilled and set with findings, but our preferred method is the modern and minimalist style wire wrapping, what focuses to show the entire size of the stone, yet holds it firm and secure in place.
We never die, color or alter our stones in any ways, all pendant are 100% natural stones, polished with a nine step lapidary process. The settings made of sterling silver jewelry wire.
We have a large collection of jewelry quality raw minerals, ready to cut. Custom shape and size cutting available.
Sorry we do not sell raw stone, we use it or only trade it.
