About grossular garnet: Green grossular garnet is a member of the traditional garnet family, but bears colors in shades of mossy greens. It was first discovered in the far reaches of Siberia in the 1800's, originally named gooseberry garnet after the Chinese gooseberry, known in the U.S. as Kiwi fruit. Grossular garnet exemplifies hope, empowerment, and all things nurturing from Mother Earth. In shades as varied as a magnificent sunrise, to the lush and verdant greens of growth and renewal, it is a stone of prosperity and abundance; encouraging gratitude and service to others.

About Grandiderite: Originally discovered in Madagascar, grandidierite was named after explorer, Alfred Gradidier in 1902. Grandidierite is rare and only found within a couple areas and classifies as the 3rd most expensive stone in the world. Due to its rareness, its metaphysical properties are yet to be discovered. Some think grandidierite influences the heart and throat chakras.

FAQ

What is this jewelry made of?

I use quality sterling silver, 14k gold fill and 14k gold.  Occasionally I throw in some bronze, copper or brass.  I use all natural gemstones, some have been treated to enhance color.

About 14k gold fill: 14K gold filled wire is a professional jewelers grade wire. Gold filled wire is not plated. It is a tube of solid 14K gold mechanically bonded to a brass or silver base. There is 100 times more gold in gold filled than in gold plate wire. This layer of gold must be a minimum of 1/20th of the total metal weight to be called gold filled. The color looks exactly like 14k gold. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and unlike gold plate, it will not wear off. It is a great way to enjoy affordable gold jewelry.
