Finding large, impressive stones for setting is an enjoyable, yet difficult job at times. We have therefore started sourcing and cutting our own rough material wherever possible. We restock and introduce new material every 6 months, and the images of the manufacturing process are available to our customers - we have found that they help drive retail sales.

Opalised Fossil Wood, Java, Indonesia - £2.50 per gram
A unusual material consisting of compressed petrified wood which has been replaced by copper minerals in an opal to agate medium, it is relatively new to the market and has been a rapid seller.
Marston Marble, Marston Magna, England - £1.80 per gram
Marston Marble is a rare English material from the village of Marston Magna in Wiltshire. It consists of millions of small ammonites (Promicroceras planicosta), were killed in a single mass extinction some 200 million years ago, and is prized as for use in jewellery.
Horn Coral, Utah, USA
From ancient coral reefs now lie thousands of feet up in the mountains of Utah, this 300 million year old material sold out the first time we exhinited it - we didn't even have time to photograph the finished pieces. One end of the section has been polished to reveal the amazing internal structure. These corals fossilised when the original organic material was replaced by silica and other minerals producing the brilliant coloration.
Below are some examples of other large pendants - new material arrives each June and December
