FEATURED COLLECTION - AUGUST '22
Appreciation of these natural minerals goes beyond the superficial. Their aesthetic lies in the stories of their geological formation we did not witness, the cultural narratives, and also mindful engagement with the colours and textures.
AMETHYST GEODE SPHERES
Amethyst geode spheres often signify a state of wholeness, wisdom and fulfilment, yet these harmonious elements are derived from careful selection and sacrificing large percentages of surrounding quartz mass to produce these unique displays. Set aglow with a simple touch of light base, and violaaa.. The artisanal crafted amethyst geode sphere transforms into a functional lamp!
AMETHYST W. CALCITE
The elegant crystalline scape of this saturated glassy amethyst is perfected by neatly colonised voluminous towers of dog-tooth calcites; as though its dynamic formation instills the highest will and ideals of Mother Earth. Truly exquisite Brazilian specimens!
AMETHYST CLUSTER (BRAZILIAN)
Bold purple Amethyst points blanket the surface of beautifully curved agate wall. The intense coloration is generously distributed from the bottom to the peak of every single terminated Amethyst, leaving minimal discolourised area, which one would observed otherwise in a typical Brazilian Amethyst geode. We have specimens that weigh over 30kg, and are ideal statement pieces for your home decor considerations.
GOLD RUTILE ON HEMATITE
Exuberant gold rays of titanium oxide interweaved onto perfected rosettes of reflective hematite. Mother Earth's elegant gold weaves stood against time and survived the geological & mining processes despite its perceived fragility. The secret charm lies in its quiet resilience and timelessness. These quality specimens are collected from Novo Horizonte, Bahia, Brazil. Premium collections are available for private viewing; kindly request from staff for arrangement.
HEMATOID (PINK) AMETHYST
A massive Pink Hematoid Amethyst slab features warm hues of lilac, pink and peach layered throughout the crystalline body. Light amethyst points are tucked tightly together in a vug near the base of the specimen, complementing neighbouring cavities of both natural points and charismatic drusy crystallizations. Its disk-like frame stylistically contoured by Mother Nature, along with a visual touch of cosmic flair, showcases a true stellar display!
A majestic stone revered through the ages. The Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the oldest known works of literature, mentions lapis lazuli several times. Ancient Egyptian pharaohs favoured it - Tutankhamun had it in his funeral mask and Cleopatra wore it as eyeshadow. And during the Renaissance, it was ground into powder and made into ultramarine, the finest and most expensive of all blue pigments. With timeless associations with royalties and deities, this arresting stone continues to captivate our senses to this day.
PERUVIAN PYRITE (PREMIUM)
Unbashful, unapologetic and brazen constitute to the qualities reflective of the light projected out from every facet of the Pyrite specimens. A bold statement piece that serves reminder for oneself to move forward confidently even on days that you feel you're not enough. As specimens of geometrical diversity to behold, Pyrite crystallizes into other formations of pyritohedrons, octahedrons, and even the more captivating icosahedrons.
SMOKY LEMURIAN QUARTZ
Alluring multi-layered cluster of Smoky Lemurian Quartz (Brazil) Lemurian quartz are often mined as individual points, and rarely in complete colonised clusters as pictured. Its highlight lies in the intricate details of an abundant bouquet of small quartz points. These formations meander intuitively into pockets of mini quartz caverns, and impressively grew out of naturally self-healed impact areas of the larger quartz points. A timeless emblem to the statement 'true beauty lies in the imperfections'.
