The volcanic eruption of Mount St. Helens caused quite the stir. But it was a surprising find discovered in the aftermath of the eruption that had locals talking long after the volcanic dust settled. Workers using a gas torch while doing salvage work discovered that the heat of the torch was melting the volcanic ash into a lustrous green substance.
The story got out and captured the attention of jewelers worldwide. It was a scramble to secure the magical ash from Mount St. Helens and perfect the heating process to achieve brilliant green stones that rival even the emerald in terms of color, refractive index and durability. We’ve found the cream of the crop and had it cut and faceted by skilled craftsmen into a gorgeous pendant erupting with vibrant color and fire. This is green like you’ve never seen it.
