Coral plume agate 18k rose gold vermeil over sterling ring - grounding
Coral plume agate set in 18K rose gold vermeil over sterling. This stone is believed to stimulate intellectual capabilities, balancing the mind. Plume Agate is sometimes thought of as a “record keeper” stone, capable of storing the history of the environment it formed in. Its banded form of finely-grained, microcrystalline Quartz create a lovely color pattern and banding making this gemstone very unique.
Plume agate was first found in the ancient Achates River in Sicily. Theophrastus in 315BC mentioned in his treatise “On Stones” that the gemstone Agate derived its name from the Sicilian River. Today Plume Agate is primarily mined in Oregon and Colorado.
The raw minerals and stones are meticulously hand selected and ethically sourced. Each step along the way I am mindful of all the hands involved in the creation of my jewelry. For my design process, the real excitement begins when I enter in to the "creative cave". In some cases it starts with the raw mineral or stone, to the birth of a design that will come through the stone.
