Semi-Precious Stones

Some of the most sought after and highly valued semi-precious stones are mined right here in Canada.  Some of these stones, such as Jade and Hematite, not only make beautiful decoration pieces, but also make stunning jewelry items.  The Jade on sale has all been mined in the Northwestern region of BC.  Nephrite, the type of jade found in British Columbia, is a silicate of calcium and magnesium.  Although Nephrite ranges in color from white to various shades of green, to even black, the jade found in BC is typically a medium to deep green color.  Jade is also the provincial stone of British Columbia, and its hardness makes it ideal for carving and for making jewelry.  Jade is said to bestow tranquility and good fortune upon those who possess the stone.  We hope that the jade items that you purchase bring you a full measure of both. 

 

Hematite, which is also known as the Alaskan Black Diamond, is a semi-precious stones that makes beautiful jewelry and carvings.  The hard black mineral lends itself to easy carving and takes on a highly attractive metallic finish.  Hematite contains 70% iron and is found in various regions of Canada, including BC, Quebec, Ontario, and Newfoundland.
