All we can say is, WOW!
Now the real work begins…. This is our largest shipment in many years. It will probably be 3 weeks or more of 12 hour days before we are ready to unveil the new stones…
We are absolutely beside ourselves; we’ve been opening boxes seemingly non-stop. The sheer volume of what we are unpacking is quite staggering. But we are so very pleased to see all the shining new faces! The new stones are incredible! Each piece we have unwrapped has been intricately carved with the best polish we have ever seen. Our carvers have really blown us away this time.
Above is a little teaser pic of our new Fire Quartz. This is clear quartz included by beautiful sprays of Red Hematite. It is known by many names, including Strawberry Quartz, Harlequin Quartz, Hematoid Quartz, and Red Quartz.
New stones from this shipment include: Black Moonstone, Red Quartz, Golden Healer Quartz, Pyrite Included Quartz, Rose Quartz, Lavender Quartz, Moon Quartz, Blue Calcite, Tiger Eye, Labradorite, Polychrome Jasper, Kambaba Jasper, Red Jasper, Septarian Nodule, Aquamarine, Ruby in Zoisite, Ruby in Kyanite, Sunstone, Ruby Feldspar, Carnelian, Ajoite, Meteorite, California Blue Chert, Big Sur California Blue Jade, Madagasi Agate, Royal Maya Agate, Fossil Dinosaur Bone, Blue Chalcedony, Blue Apatite, Atlantisite, Lapis Lazuli, and Obsidian.
We carved some really cool new shapes this time around too! You can expect to see new Tibetan Phurpa's, Gemstone Hearts, Rock Stars, Crystal Lucky Cats, Goddesses and Goddess Beads, and lots of new Focal Beads! And this particular selection of Crystal Skulls has really inspired us! Also new are a large selection of gemstone carved Frogs, Panthers, Snakes, and even Sharks!
