Mt. St. Helens Emerald Obsidianite
When Mt. St. Helens erupted in 1981, pulverized rock blasted out. When heated, this material fuses into a gorgeous translucent stone of a rich emerald color - Emerald Obsidianite. Identical in color to emeralds, it's a bonafide piece of Mt. St. Helens!
Oregon Opal is a unique variety of opal found in only one place in the world - Opal Butte, Ore. When faceted, Oregon Opal flashes dusky blue-violet or yellow-orange. In our free-form pendants, Oregon Opal is transparent, resembling an underwater scene.
Moldavite is the one and only gem from space! Formed by the impact of a meteorite 14.8 million years ago in the Czech Republic, it is translucent dusky green in color. Moldavite is considered one of the most powerful stones for spiritual development.
