In March 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted. It was a stunning demonstration of nature’s power, with volcanic ash firing 16 miles high into the air, and destructive lava flows spreading for 230 square miles. From that awesome eruption emerged something beautiful, when it was discovered that heating the volcanic elements created a beautiful green gemstone, now known as helenite.
The Power of Faith Helenite Cross Pendant is a cross design made of one carat of pure helenite. This pendant says to the world that your belief is just as strong, just as awe inspiring, just as impressive, as the stunning display of natural power that Mount St. Helens showed the world in 1980. It’s also a reminder that the source of your strength ultimately leads to beauty and serenity, as embodied by the helenite gemstone.
