New Natural Stones

Bamboo Agate features brilliantly banded patterns of white, clear, black, greyand orange. Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. Chrysocolla is a hydrous copper silicate, often forming with copper salts, iron and manganese oxides. Chrysocolla is known to form in oxidation zones of copper ore bodies and is actually considered a minor ore for the mineral copper. Although Chrysocolla may be a ‘lesser known’ gemstone, it is still a very fascinating stone that is highly sought-after by many avid gem and mineral enthusiasts. Chrysocolla belongs to a very small group of copper-bearing gems which gives it the green coloring and patterns. This Chrysocolla comes from Arizona, a well know copper mining area. Crazy Horse Jaspers add a bit of whimsy and wonder to the mix, encouraging us to enjoy life, to seek beauty and humor, and to not take ourselves too seriously. Druzy, also often spelled drusy, druse or drusies, refers to tiny quartz crystals that form within or on the surface of other stones. A Druzy stone features this unique crystal-like finish that has the look and feel like no other stone. ┬áIt occurs within geodes, which are hollow, spherical rocks, and lines the interior walls and cavities that occur. This dense form of quartz called chalcedony forms the exterior rind, and what is left is a beautiful druzy finish. Our Druzy gemstones range from bright white and pinks to brilliant reds, browns and greys.

These beautiful gemstones are all different and unique; find freeform cabs, matched pairs, drilled pendants and calibrated shapes.
