CLASSIFICATION: Faceted Emerald Pears. ORIGIN: The Ural Mountains(Siberia) Russia. 19th Century. SIZE: Length: 5.5mm. Width: 4mm. Depth: 3mm. All measurements approximate WEIGHT: 0.67 carats(the pair) NOTES: Upon request we can set your gemstones as a ring. Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: The Greeks regarded the emerald as the sacred stone of the goddess Aphrodite(Venus to the Romans) and of the Earth Goddess. Emerald has been cherished since about 4.000 B.C. when they were traded at the earliest known gem market in Babylon. The ancient world's source for these precious gemstones was Egyptian emerald mines near the Red Sea according to ancient Egyptian written texts dated to the life of Pharaoh Sesostris III in the 19th century B.C. the recently rediscovered“Cleopatra’s Mines” near the Red Sea. The Greeks worked these mines in the time of Alexander the Great and throughout the Ptolemaic Dynasty. The last ruler of the Greek Ptolemaic Dynasty in Egypt, Cleopatra VII, Queen of Egypt, was often depicted and described wearing fabulous emeralds mined from those same famous ancient mines. Here are two very nice, near eye clean, beautifully colored natural emerald precious gemstones from the Southern Urals of(Siberia) Russia, hand faceted into a sparkling pears in the 19th century. Emeralds are nearly 100 times rarer than diamonds, and there are few opportunities to acquire good quality natural emeralds at reasonable prices. The best specimens can bring over $40,000 a carat. These particular precious gemstones possess the crystal clear green color characteristic of good quality emeralds. Though it might be possible to make out a few imperfections upon close scrutiny, to casual inspection they are more or less eye clean. You can see in these photo enlargements that even at 500% magnif

Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: Rubies were amongst the earliest gemstones traded by mankind. Since the 5th millennium B.C. From the most ancient times all the way through the medieval world, ruby was worn by the classical Mediterranean civilizations(Greeks, Romans, Persians, and the Indo-European“Celtic” peoples) as an amulet for protection from lightening, plagues, poison, sorrow, and evil spirits. The ancient populations of the Mediterranean also believed that the color of a ruby would change mirroring changes in the health of its owner, and that the color would drain from a ruby at the moment its owner died. The Bible makes numerous mentions of ruby, first as one of the twelve precious stones created by God when he created mankind. Ruby is then described as“the lord of gems” when one was given to Aaron on the command of God. In the classical world, rubies from Afghanistan, Ceylon, and Burma were traded in the ancient port cities of the Eastern Mediterranean(often by Phoenicians) and from there traveled throughout Europe. Celebrating mankind's cultural and historical legacy here's a remarkable and beautiful antique ruby precious gemstone. The gemstone was hand shaped and polished by an 18th century Russian artisan. Part of an heritage renown for the production of the elaborate gemstones and jewelry of the Czars of Medieval, Renaissance, and Victorian Russia.

Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: In ancient Burma it was believed that a ruby embedded into the skin to become part of the body. Thus making the wearer invulnerable and invincible, attributes especially useful to a warrior. In Sanskrit, one of the primary languages of nearby ancient(East) India a ruby was called"ratnaraj" which means"King of Gems" To them, this fiery stone burned with an inextinguishable fire, capable of boiling the water in which it was placed. Ancient Indian legends said that God first created ruby and later created man to possess it, and that he who offered rubies to the gods would be reincarnated as a powerful king or emperor. In ancient India rubies were also sorted into upper class, middle class, and lower class stones in relation to their color, flawlessness and beauty. Much like Indian society today, no inferior ruby was allowed contact with an upper class ruby because it was believed the low-caste ruby would contaminate the better one, thereby diminishing its magical powers.

NOTES: Upon request we can set your gemstones as a ring. Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: According to Jewish mythology. A giant garnet provided interior lighting for Noah's Ark. It is also believed that garnet, described as“nopek” was one of the twelve gemstones described in the Bible in Exodus 28:17-20 as adorning Aaron’s breastplate, representing the twelve tribes of ancient Israel. Ancient Mediterranean populations believed that a garnet could give its wearer guidance in the night, allowing them to see when others could not. Garnet was also worn for protection when traveling. Here is a gorgeous, richly colored dark forest green tsavorite precious gemstone which has been cut into a faceted oval. This is a nice quality specimen no less than eye clean. Tsavorite, also known as grossular garnet, is one of the worlds rarest and most sought after precious gemstones. It was first discovered in Tanzania in 1967 in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, though it was not until 1971 that the first specimens were extracted from nearby Kenya. The name is derived from the adjoining Tsavo National Park famous for its mighty"red" elephants who wallow in and spray themselves with red iron-rich mud during the rainy seasons. The park is also well known for its man-eating lions. The rich green color of tsavorite is derived from trace elements of vanadium and chromium. Tsavorite is exceptionally bright and sparkling.

Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: Much of the ruby reaching early Medieval Europe came from Badakhshan. On the border between present-day Tajikistan and Afghanistan. Marco Polo described visiting these mines in his accounts of his travels. Later Medieval Europe’s rubies came principally from the border region between Burma and Siam(present-day Myanmar and Thailand) In the medie val world rubies were viewed as a stone of prophecy, used by medieval shamans and sorcerers to divine the future. It was believed that wearing ruby would attract good health, wisdom, fortune, and true love. Ruby was also worn as a talisman, as it was believed that the stone darkened when danger was near and then return to its original color when the danger was past. Ruby was also thought to be an antidote to poisoning as well, and to protect the wearer from lightening, plagues, poison, sorrow, and evil spirits. Consequentially rubies were considered even more valuable than diamonds. In Medieval Europe ruby was priced eight times higher than diamond.

The source for most carnelian in the early Mediterranean were simply gemstones found on the surface of the Egyptian and Arabian deserts. By 1700 B.C. the Minoans(of ancient Crete) had established trade routes from Knossos to Turkey, Cyprus, Egypt, Afghanistan, and Scandinavia. Carnelian was one of their major trade goods, along with amethyst, lapis lazuli, and gold. Archaeologists have discovered carnelian as far away as Japan, in Iron Age burials. Ultimately by the time another thousand years elapsed most of the carnelian used for the production of jewelry in the ancient world originated in India. The gemstones would reached the Mediterranean either via the Silk Route(if overland) or if by sea, they would have crossed the Arabian and Red Sea by ship, then overland to Alexandria in Egypt, befor

DETAIL: Mariners as early as the 11th century knew spinel as“lodestone” Which literally means“way stone” Due to the unique magnetic properties of spinel, it literally“found the way” for ancient mariners as it was used to magnetize the compasses which they used to guide their ship's course at sea. This also saw the beginning of the art of cartography, as seaman began to plot the courses of their voyages and create the earliest maps of the world. Often mistaken for ruby or sapphire in Medieval and Renaissance Europe, many of the so-called"rubies" and“sapphires” in Europe's crown jewels are actually spinel. The most famous is the Black Prince's"Ruby" a magnificent 170-carat red spinel that currently adorns the Imperial State Crown in the British Crown Jewels. Long believed to be a ruby, this gem was once owned by the Arabian Emirs, who were the rulers of Granada(present-day Spain) Celebrating our cultural legacy here's a gorgeous. Sparklin

NOTES: Upon request we can set your gemstones as a ring. Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: Rubies were viewed as a stone of prophecy. Used by medieval shamans and sorcerers to divine the future. It was believed that wearing ruby would attract good health, wisdom, fortune, and true love. Ruby was also worn as a talisman, as it was believed that the stone darkened when danger was near and then return to its original color when the danger was past. Ruby was also thought to be an antidote to poisoning as well, and to protect the wearer from lightening, plagues, poison, sorrow, and evil spirits. Consequentially rubies were considered even more valuable than diamonds. In Medieval Europe ruby was priced eight times higher than diamond. In Medieval England, ruby was used for royal coronation rings. Some ancient cultures believed that rubies, as well as other gemstones, grew on trees, just like fruit. The rubies would begin budding as small white gems, and would slowly grow and ripen, turning red in the light of the sun. When the ruby was saturated with red color, it was ready to be plucked. Here's an 18th century antique hand-crafted. Faceted oval ruby precious gemstone which originated in Mysore, India.

DETAIL: In the ancient world malachite was a famous and very popular semi-precious stone. The Egyptians seem to have been the first to mine and use malachite as early as 4000 B.C. In addition to use in the manufacture of amulets and jewelry. Malachite was ground for use as eye shadow and as pigment for tomb paintings. The application of eye shadow was believed to provide psychic protection as well. The Egyptian word for eye-palette is derived from their word for"protect. An unadorned and therefore unprotected eye was believed vulnerable to the“Evil Eye” Outlining the eyes thus gained significance beyond beautification. The act itself created a personal protective amulet drawn directly on the skin; an amulet that once applied could not be broken, lost, or stolen. Found in tombs of the pre-dynastic period, eye makeup equipment(palettes, grinders and applicators) seems to have also been essential for the afterlife. Malachite gets its name from the Greek word"Mala'khe" which refers to its green color. Following in the Egyptians' footsteps, Greeks also made jewelry and talismans from malachite to ward off evil spel

Prior to the discoveries in Roman Germania, the ancient Mediterranean’s source for these precious gemstones was Egyptian emerald mines near the Red Sea. These were the recently rediscovered“Cleopatra’s Mines” near the Red Sea, described in ancient Egyptian written texts dated to the life of Pharaoh Sesostris III in the 19th century B.C. The Greeks worked these mines in the time of Alexander the Great and throughout the Ptolemaic(Hellenic/Macedonian) Dynasty. The last ruler of the Greek Ptolemaic Dynasty in Egypt, Cleopatra VII, Queen of Egypt, was often depicted and described wearing fabulous emeralds mined from those same famous ancient mines. Here’s a beautiful. Very nice quality, richly colored Colombian green emerald of intense, bright hue. Emeralds are nearly 100 times rarer than diamonds, and there are few opportunities to acquire such good quality natural emeralds at reasonable prices. The best specimens can bring over $40,000 a carat.
