Think Pink!

by Julia Aufenast April 12, 2011 1 min read

I love it when people send me photographs of the beautiful things they have made from the stones they have bought from me.  Stones always look incomparably better when set, and their natural beauty properly framed.  This ring is a design by Trina Allen of TLA Designs; an 8mm pink tourmaline in a soft apricot shade, bezel set in sterling silver with a lovely hammered band.  Lovely clean, elegant lines which set off the warm pink of the stone beautifully, and you know, the older I get, the more I like pink.  It’s happy and uplifting and it makes you smile, so chuck out that basic black; spring is here, the blossom is blooming and it’s pink all over!

You can visit Trina’s shop here:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/tladesigns and you can find more tourmaline in my shop at www.joopygems.com

In its transparent form, it’s more pricey but I just love the milky variety; in lovely shades of pale blue to sea-green, it is misty, hazy and dreamy. It’s common to […]

When Prehnite Packs a Punch

by Julia Aufenast August 15, 2019 2 min read

Many years ago, shortly after I started out, the price of prehnite went shooting up. It was one of those odd things, where I had to do a bit of a double take. What could be going on? I was told, it was because it was being used as a jade substitute for the Chinese […]
