diamond stone

Diamond

Historically, the first diamonds were extracted 3,000 years ago in India. As they are only extracted from alluvial deposits (found on riverbanks), and because of their great beauty and extraordinary resistance, diamonds are an important symbol in many cultures.

Milky Quartz

In order to understand the origin of this stone, we should first look at the notion and definition of the word crystal. The term would come from the ancient Greek « Krystallos » and « Kryos », which mean respectively « ice » and « frost ». Ancient beliefs indicate that it was formed after a significant drop in temperature.

Nacre

Nephrite stone is a rock, one of the three called jade, along with jadeite and kosmochlor: these three minerals have long been mixed up as they have similar appearance and properties, although their chemical composition is not the same.
pink tourmaline stone

Pink Tourmaline

According to ancient Egyptian legend, tourmalines are stones that came from the centre of the Earth on a long journey that took them through a rainbow. This story would explain the fact that the tourmaline family is one of the most colourful and with the most variety.

Quartz stone

White quartz, also known as “milky quartz”, has always been particularly appreciated by jewellers. Since the 19th century, there has been a great demand for this stone. For instance, fortune-tellers used crystal balls. In addition, white quartz symbolised eternity throughout Antiquity.
rock crystal stone

Rock Crystal

In 1500 BC, Mycenaeans (An Aegean Civilisation of the Helladic period in Greece) were already beginning to carve and sculpt rock crystal stone. Indeed, a rock crystal stone cup is housed at Athens museum from this period.

Rubellite

Rubellite stone, its Latin name meaning « reddish », is actually a variety of pink tourmaline. According to an ancestral legend from Egypt, they came out of the epicentre of the Earth and, during their long ascent, they crossed a rainbow of colours, depositing on them the variety of colours specific to this type of gem.

Staurolite

Jean-Claude Delamétherie, a French mineralogist, first described this stone in 1792 and gave it the name Staurolite, from the Greek σταυρός stauros (« torture stake »). This term even comes from the Indo-European root sta (« stand »). This name was kept as the main choice because of its anteriority when René Just Haüy tried to rename this stone as Staurotide stone.
pierre quartz blanc

White Quartz

White quartz, also known as “milky quartz”, has always been particularly appreciated by jewellers. Since the 19th century, there has been a great demand for this stone. For instance, fortune-tellers used crystal balls. In addition, white quartz symbolised eternity throughout Antiquity.
