For almost a hundred years it lay dormant. At 10,000 feet high, it was truly a sleeping giant, a vision of peaceful power. Until everything changed in one cataclysmic moment on May 18, 1980.
It was one of nature’s most impressive displays of power. Mount St. Helens erupted, sending a column of ash and smoke 80,000 feet into the atmosphere. From that chaos, something beautiful emerged… our spectacular Helenite Necklace. Produced from the heated volcanic rock dust of Mount St. Helens, this brilliant green gemstone has captured the attention of jewelry designers worldwide.
Our Helenite Necklace puts the gorgeous, 9-carat Helenite gem center stage, surrounded by glittering DiamondAura® finished in luxurious gold. The explosive origins of the stone are echoed in the flashes of light that radiate as the piece swings gracefully from its 18" gold-finished sterling silver chain. Today the volcano sits quiet, but this unique piece of history continues to erupt with gorgeous green fire.
