STORY OF DISCOVERY: Newly discovered semi-precious stone. Each piece is handcrafted by skilled artisans.
After a sizable emerald was found in area a search was initiated. While to date, there has been no more emerald found, a massive vein of extremely rare stone was discovered (named Luminite), high above the tree line. Each year, for the few short months (Due to weather conditions at high altitude), large boulders of stone (see image left) are pulled out and transported to a lower level for carving to begin.
Each stone pillar is lovingly cut, using patience, pressure and water. It takes many hours and sometimes days to carve a single stone pillar. Cut, the pillar is then polished and then set with a light acidic bath to "seal" the stone. Once completed to the finished state, each stone will remain forever. Each piece is unique with its own personality and story to tell, I true Million year old treasure.
MORE ABOUT COLOR: Varying color of the stone is attributed to the level of iron and sulphur deposits at the time of formation and the particular thickness of the stone Veins of red and grey clay deposits found in the stone as well, they are rare and makes for a beautiful contrast in the color. White deposits in the stone believed to be seafoam that was able to solidify and attach to the stone during the creation. Believed to be created by a meteor strike and flash formed in a millisecond.
USES: A premier décor element for the home, weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, housewarmings parties, and other gatherings—and an ideal gift for any occasion.
It's durability and likeness to marble and alabaster make it ideal for residential and commercial elements for your home, restaurant or office projects including countertops, sinks, shower walls and bar tops that can be backlit.
Due to naturally-occurring variations in Luminite, no two stone's pattern or cut will match exactly (like a snowflake). Variant patterns in stone may not be exactly as pictured; they will be similar. Your stone will be your own, no one else will ever have one quite like it again, your's is special and there will never be one exactly like it.
