Chrysoprase -is a gemstone variety of chalcedony (a cryptocrystalline form of silica) that contains small quantities of nickel. Its color is normally apple-green, but varies to deep green.
Amazonite (sometimes called “Amazon stone”) is a green variety of microcline feldspar. The name is taken from that of the Amazon River, from which certain green stones were formerly obtained, but it is doubtful whether green feldspar occurs in the Amazon area. It is a mineral of limited occurrence. Because of its bright green color when polished, amazonite is sometimes cut and used as an inexpensive gemstone in a similar way to agate, although it is easily fractured.
Rhodonite – is a manganese inosilicate and member of the pyroxenoid group of minerals, crystallizing in the triclinic system. It commonly occurs as cleavable to compact masses with a rose-red color (the name comes from the Greek rhodos, rosy), often tending to brown because of surface oxidation.
Lapis Lazuli -is a deep blue semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense color.
Sodalite -is a rich royal blue mineral widely enjoyed as an ornamental gemstone. Although massive Sodalite samples are opaque, crystals are usually transparent to translucent. Sodalite is a member of the Sodalite group with hauyne, nosean, lazurite and tugtupite.
Quartz -is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth’s continental crust, after feldspar. There are many different varieties of quartz, several of which are semi-precious gemstones. Varieties of quartz have been since antiquity the most commonly used minerals in the making of jewelry and hard-stone carvings.
Zebra Jasper– is a form of jasper that is decorated with mixes of grey, white and soft pink in zebra strip patterns. When used in jewelry making each bead has its own special pattern making the item made with it unique.
Dragon Blood Jasper – is a member of the quartz family (chalcedony). It is a fantastically patterned gemstone with deep red tones of matrix joined with a combination of forest green hues. Dragon Blood Jasper is found only in Western Australia. Local legend there says that the stone is the remains of deceased ancient dragons – the green being the skin and the red the blood.
Swarovski crystals – Swarovski crystal components are made in Austria and are considered the finest products of their kind in the world.
