Iolite was used by Norse and Viking explorers as a navigational aid. Here are five absolutely gorgeous, richly colored iolite gemstones from Chelyabinsk, Russia. 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.

High quality, beautifully colored, transparent, unblemished, these lustrous semi-precious gemstones possess a bright, velvety violet-blue hue. They are very attractive gemstones, of very special character and remarkable color and texture. Highly favored by the royal houses of Europe in the 19th century.

Tourmaline occurred in many of the ancient mines that yielded precious gemstones in the ancient Roman world 2,000 years ago, however it was mistaken for(and thus called) emerald or topaz(or in some cases, perhaps ruby) However tourmaline was correctly identified and described in the ancient world by Theophrastus of Ancient Greece(student and successor of Plato and Aristotle) in 314 B.C. The name“tourmaline” came from the Celanese word"turmali, which means"mixed" Bright rainbow collections of gemstone varieties were called"turmali" parcels.

Also peopled with handsome paladins, beautiful maidens, malevolent witches, and treacherous demons. The particular manuscript of the"Shah-nameb" introduced here by Stuart Cary Welch, Curator of Indian and Islamic Painting at the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, is the most sumptuous one every produced. Containing scores of paintings where other sixteenth-century manuscripts contained perhaps a dozen. The Houghton"Shah-nameb" identified with the name of its owner, Arthur A. Houghton) is thought to have been commissioned about 1522 by Shah Isma'il, the founder of the Safavid Dynasty, as a present for his son, Prince Tahmasp. Court artisans and craftsmen continued their work on the 759 folios for the better part of two decades. As a consequence, the book offers a fascinating mixture of artistic styles. The extraordinary quality of the paintings was known even in Shah Tahmasp's time. One commentator wrote then of Sultan Muhammad's page representing"The Court of Gayumars" the boldest painters hung their heads in shame before it" While that superb image. Reproduced within the book in color and gold, is called by Stuart Welch"perhaps the greatest painting in Iranian art: others of the pages he has selected for color reproduction and special comment are clearly in the same area of merit.

DETAIL: Medieval Europe was unfamiliar with jade as a gemstone for jewelry use until the Portuguese imported jade from their colony at Canton. China. The Portuguese called jade"piedre de ilharga" or stone of the loins, because they believed it to be strong medicine for kidney ailments.

Jade objects brought back to Spain from the New World were called by the Spanish version of this phrase, piedra de hijada" This became to the French ejade, and then, finally, jade" In Chinese mythology the Moon Hare made an elixir of immortality from crushed Jade. So of course jade was ground up and drunken as an“elixir of immortality” believed to preserve vitality and youth.
