ametrine stone


Originating from a natural blend of Amethyst and Citrine stone, Ametrine derives its name from these two minerals. The first part of the word ‘Ame’ comes from Amethyst. The second part ‘trine’ comes from citrine.
pierre ammonite


Amazonite stone takes its name from the Amazon River where it was discovered. This green stone was honoured by Amazonian warriors and symbolises courage. However, some studies refute this analysis as it is likely that amazonite never existed in this river and it was simply a confusion with another mineral.
aventurine stone


Although this natural mineral has been around for a long time, the name “aventurine stone” has only recently been attributed to it, in reference to “Murano glass”. It is a synthetic crystal, which resembles the natural stone. The most known story comes from around the year 1700, when the glassmakers of Venice, Italy, experienced a mass exodus to the small island of Murano.
black tourmaline stone

Black Tourmaline

Arriving on French territory in 1703, black tourmaline stone was first documented by Buffon in 1759. During this period, emperors and kings had vast quantities of black tourmaline. From the 1800s onwards, black tourmaline stone was widely used and exploited in jewellery.

Blood Jasper

Long considered to be the most beautiful variety of Jasper, Blood Jasper stone is also known as Heliotrope Jasper or Blood Stone. It is a stone whose colour varies from black to dark green. It is decorated with dots that can be yellow, white, but more generally red.


Bloodstone, or heliotrope, is a deep green, earthy mineral with red spots. During Antiquity, this gem was much sought after and highly appreciated as it was considered the most beautiful gem.
charoite stone


Found in a single region of Russia, charoite is deemed a rare stone. It takes its name from the Chara River, located in the Aldan massif in Russia, a range of peaks that are 800 to 1,000 m high on average. The word ‘chary’ means ‘charm’ or ‘magic’ in Russian.


Rocks are not only useful for geologists or architects. They can also be very useful in medicine. Lithotherapy is the branch that consists of treating health issues using the vibrations of rocks. Chrysolite is a rock with a very exciting history. Its origins go back several centuries before Christ. It has a special reputation that gives it a special place in the treatment of many ills.
copper stone


Copper has been appreciated and widely used since its discovery. Its name, Aes Cyprium, comes from Cyprus as this island is one of the major sources. Copper is particularly renowned for its durability. The ancients represented it with a symbol meaning “for life,” due to its anti-corrosion abilities and for its ability to alloy with other metals, creating brass, a mixture of copper and zinc, and bronze, a mixture of copper and tin.


First of all, the history of this rock goes back to antiquity. Although there is no explicit information dealing with it, it would seem to have been used by the faithful in the worship of Athena, the Greek goddess of War and Wisdom. It would then have been used by the Vikings to orient them when the sky was overcast.


Fuchsite stone belongs to the Muscovite family, which derives from the Latin translation of “vitrum muscoviticum” (Moscow glass). This name was used as early as 1794 by Johann Gottfried Schmeisser (1767-1837), a German pharmacist and mineralogist, in his book “Mineralogical System”.


Galena stone eis exploited in several localities of La Calestienne, which have become very famous over the years. This is the case of Matagne-La-Grande, Matagne-La-Petite, Treignes, Villers-en-Fagne. Some early miners spent a lifetime of hard work in shafts to extract them.
pierre aventurine verte

Green Aventurine

The stone takes its name from the Latin word “adventura” which is used to talk about a future event. It also refers to the word “advenire”, literally meaning “to happen”. Green aventurine is therefore associated with new adventures and new discoveries. The stone also has a rich history, worth knowing.


It takes its name from the Greek “helios”, which means sun, with respect to its beautiful golden-yellow colour, for the prettiest specimens, the others being rather orange and even having a green glow. It was discovered in Namibia in 1910 in the same rocks (pegmatites) where aquamarines were found.
heliotrope stone


Heliotrope stone takes its name from the Greek words ‘helios’ and ‘trepeini’ meaning ‘sun’ and ‘turn’ respectively. It is also commonly referred to as ‘blood jasper’ and ‘blood stone.’ Heliotrope is a mixture of crystallised chalcedony, quartz and iron.
pierre hypersthene


Hypersthene is a common name derived from ancient Greek. Etymologically, “hyper” means “over”. Sthenos refers to strength, power and endurance. Since 1988, the IMA (International Mineralogical Association) has discredited this name.

Landscape Jasper

Landscape Jasper stone is distinguished by its brown colour, which can show superimposed or intertwined striations of different tones. Landscape jasper is also called picture jasper, scenic jasper or Kalahari Desert jasper because of its sandy colour which suggests ancient landscapes.

Moss Agate

In many cultures and civilizations, Moss Agate stone is a sign of soil fertility. Bringing good omens, close to nature, it extends its great generosity to the earth. This closeness to breeding ground is probably due to the crystallization of moss, its particular, fibrous and vegetal veining. It is the friend of gardeners and farmers. The great Athena owes its stability and balance to Moss Agate.

Native Sulphur

Spectrolite stone is a rare variety of labradorite. It was discovered by Moravian missionaries in 1770 while travelling through the Labrador Region in Canada. They were responsible for the evangelization of certain peoples in the region, such as the Inuit. Local myths and legends tell of a great Inuit warrior who once speared a rock.


Olivine stone is a mineral belonging to the silicate group. Finding its origin around 1500 BC, and called “peridot”, it is very present in ancient Egypt. It is the main element of the mother rock “Peridotite”.
pierre orgonite


In the early 1940s, Wilhelm Reich referred to the existence of a vital energy emitted by orgone that would be a real source of vitality. It was only after his death that various studies on this mysterious energy were carried out by a great number of scientists and supporters.
peridot stone


This stone of distant origins and strangely miraculous virtues holds an excellent reputation. Discover the fascinating story of this sublime vibrant yellow and olive gem.
porphyry stone


Porphyry is available in different colours. Nevertheless, the purple one is mostly known and historically raised it to its actual prestige. During Pharaonic Egypt times, it would seem that it was unused and unknown. That said, other similar stones were used in Predynastic Egypt for making vases, but it would seem that this ceased afterwards.
pierre vésuvianite


Vesuvianite owes its name to the Vesuvius volcano, which is located in Naples, Italy, where it was first discovered. It was identified in 1795 by the German gemmologist Abraham Gottlob Werner. In 1801, it was named “idocrase”, which means mixed shapes, because this mineral can occur in massive, compact and even granular aspects.
pierre zoïsite


The history of zoisite stone is very recent. This mineral was discovered in the 18th century by the Austrian naturalist and mineralogist Sigmund Zois, Baron von Edelstein, who made his fortune in the iron trade in Ljubljana, the present capital of Slovenia.
