2 Celtic Sunshine 19thC Antique Scotland Orange Citrine Gemstones

A belief dating back to the Druids. Ancient cultures attributed many mystical properties to quartz crystals. They were particularly used in sorcery, magic, and witchcraft in part due to the"secret magical powers" evidenced by the weak electrical charge quartz crystals carry. For centuries both gemstones were commonly ... moreset into the pommel of the Scottish dirk, or“black dagger” a long dagger with a straight blade that is a prerequisite of Highland costume. Here are two very nice, very clean, very colorful citrus orange citrine semi-precious gemstones from the Devonian lava beds found along the coast of Angus Country, Scotland. The gemstones were hand crafted and faceted by a 19th 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. The faceted cut is a coarse precursor to what eventually became known in the industry as a“brilliant cut” round, the contemporary finish generally given to round diamonds. Very popular in 18th and 19th century Victorian Scotland, citrine has remained a very popular gemstone through the 20th century. These are very fine, bright citrus orange colored semi-precious gemstones. Citrine was often found within the deposits with"smoky" streaks, as was"smoky" quartz, the result of eons of exposure to natural radiation emanating from granite stone the citrine is exposed to while buried in the earth. On occasion, rather than creating smok
2 Antique 19thC Scotland Amethyst Roman Warrior Amulet Gemstones

Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: Most ancient Mediterranean cultures. Including the ancient Romans, Greeks, Persians and Celts believed that amethyst would protect against becoming intoxicated, and would protect soldiers from harm in battle. Amethyst is described in the Bible(Exodus 28:19; 39:12) as one of the 12 stones adorning the breastplate(hoshen) of the high priests of Yahweh. Legends of the ancient classical Mediterranean attribute the Amethyst's lovely ... morecolor to the Greek God Bacchus(the god of wine) Here are two very pretty, very clean, 19th century faceted amethyst squares from the Devonian lava beds found along the coast of Angus Country, Scotland. Very popular in 18th and 19th century Victorian Scotland, amethyst has remained a very popular gemstone through the 20th century. The gemstones were hand crafted by a 19th century Russian artisan into these sparkling faceted gemstones full of flashes of fiery brilliance. Czarist Russia, fabled land of such master jewelers as Faberge, was of course known throughout the Renaissance and Victorian worlds for its elaborate and costly jewelry. These are two very fine, richly colored semi-precious gemstones. Gorgeous, vibrant, and vividly hued, these striking semi-precious gemstones are of very high quality and possess breathtaking luster. Both have been hand faceted into beautiful faceted cut squares. Both gemstones are alive with sparkling flashes and the impression of great depth. They are virtually flawless. Even under a 5x glass. Certainly to the eye they are nothing less than perfect, they are truly beautifully colored gemstones. Under magnification the gemstones show th

CLASSIFICATION: Smoky Quartz Faceted Round Cut Semi-Precious Gemstones. ORIGIN: Mount Cairngorm. Scotland. 19th Century. Handcut in or near Yekaterinburg, Russia, 19th Century. SIZE: 5mm Round* 4mm Deep. All measurements approximate. WEIGHT: 1.05 carats(the pair) NOTES: Other setting styles(euro clicks. Lever backs, kidney wires, ball/stud dangles) are available upon request, both in sterling silver, as well as 14kt solid gold and in 14kt gold fill. DETAIL: Smoky quartz from Mount Cairngorm. Scotland, known as"cairngorm" and since ancient times has been a favorite ornamental gemstone. It is the national gemstone of Scotland and has been ... moreconsidered a sacred stone for millennia, a belief dating back to the Druids. Many ancient cultures attributed many mystical properties to quartz crystals. They were particularly used in sorcery, magic, and witchcraft in part due to the"secret magical powers" evidenced by the weak electrical charge quartz crystals carry. Here are two very uncommon semi-precious gemstones from Victorian-era Scotland, specifically Mount Cairngorm. Very popular in 18th and 19th century Victorian Scotland, these gemstones are known either as“Smoky” or“Cairngorm” Quartz. Generally“crystal” clear, the smoky tone is caused by the natural radiation emanating from granite stone the quartz is exposed to while buried in the earth. These are very handsome round cut smoky quartz crystal gemstones. The faceted cut is a coarse precursor to what eventually became known in the industry as a“brilliant cut” round, the contemporary finish generally given to round diamonds. These particular specimens are completely transparent, with beautiful sparkle and luster. They are exceptionally clean, water clear, and very bright. They are a gorgeous smoky brown color. The gemstones were hand crafted and faceted by
2 Antique 19thC Ceylon Ruby Ancient Celtic Magic Amulet Gemstones
Two Antique 19th Century Genuine Natural Good Quality Marquise Faceted Ruby Precious Gemstones from Ceylon. ORIGIN: Ceylon. 19th Century. SIZE: Length: 5mm. Width: 2 1/2mm. Measurements approximate. WEIGHT: 0.24 Carats(the pair) NOTES: Upon request we can set your gemstones as a ring. Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: Ruby was worn by the ancient Mediterranean civilizations as an amulet for protection from plagues. Poison, sorrow, and evil spirits. Both the Greeks and Indo-Europeans(Celts) believed that the“heat” evidenced by the intense, red color was fire from within the gemstone, capable of boiling water or melting wax. Here are two very nice quality 19th century antique hand faceted marquise cut ruby precious gemstones from Ceylon(present day Sri Lanka) Both are relatively eye clean, of higher value character ... moreas opposed to lower value translucent rubies. Of course most ruby gemstones are anywhere from lightly to heavily blemished. Most completely transparent rubies you see offered today at retail are synthetic. While this particular pair might not be absolutely flawless, to casual scrutiny they are at least near eye clean, and are definitely at the higher end of the quality spectrum. At magnification(such as these 5x images here) they are seen to possess a modest number of very faint blemishes composed of colorless crystalline material. Nonetheless, they both possess the much sought after bright blood red color which has captivated mankind for eons. To the trained eye the photo enlargements will literally shout that the gemstones have been hand-faceted. The coarseness of the 19th century faceting is considered appealing to most gemstone collectors, and is not considered a detriment. Unlike today's computer controlled machinery, the cut and finish of a gemstone such as this is the legacy of an artisan who lived two centuries ago. Such antique hand-faceted gemstones possess much greater character and appeal than today's mass-produced machine-faceted gemstones. These gemsto
2 Antique 19thC ¾ct Tourmaline Ancient Gem of Rainbows
Two Exquisite. Antique, Nineteenth Century Briolette Cut Hand Faceted Genuine Natural Siberian Three-Quarter Carat Green“Chrome” Tourmaline Semi-Precious Gemstones. Mounted into contemporary high quality 14kt French hooks. CLASSIFICATION: Briolette Cut Green Siberian Tourmaline. ORIGIN: Ural Mountains of Russia. 19th Century. SIZE: Length: 6mm. Diameter: 5mm. WEIGHT: 1.74 carats(the pair) NOTES: Other setting styles(euro clicks. Lever backs, kidney wires, ball/stud dangles) are available upon request, both in 14kt solid gold and in 14kt gold fill. DETAIL: In ancient mythology. Tourmaline was found in all colors because it traveled along a rainbow and gathered all the rainbow's colors. In fact the name tourmaline comes from the Dutch traders who purchased gemstones from the Celanese(i.e. Ceylon or Sri Lanka) The word"turmali, meant"mixed" ... moreand the bright rainbow collections of gemstone varieties which the Dutch purchased were called"turmali" parcels.
