TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND YEARS AGO,

Humans began to decorate themselves with brightly colored stones, shells and bones. By the late fourth millenium BCE, in Mesopotamia, rock-crystal cylinder seals were used for identification and status.

A few thousand years further on, the mummy of the Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamen (ca.1341-1323 BCE) was dressed in 143 pieces jewelry- talismans with precious stones such as carnelian, lapis, and turquoise.

Gem and crystals have been revered and valued through the ages, wether as luxury objects, talismans ascribed with magical and medicinal powers, or spectacular adornments.

Today gemstones and crystals, continue to enthrall us with their history, rarity, and, of course, beauty. Who can resist the magnificent, intense color of a ruby or the flawless transparency of a diamond?
