The Mysterious Rock Formed From a Volcano
'America's emerald' helenite stuns in a three-stone design
Usually, you can't beat Mother Nature. But usually doesn't mean always.
On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens blew its top, sending a column of ash and smoke 80,000 feet into the air. The explosion was one of nature's most impressive displays of power ever, leaving a mile-wide, horseshoe-shaped crater. But even more impressive than the blast was the secret the volcano had been hiding ...
Through the use of blowtorches to expedite the cleanup, it was discovered that the heated volcanic rock transformed into the remarkable stone helenite, a clearer, cleaner and brighter gem than the finest rubies and emeralds. Produced from ancient minerals that erupted from inside Mount St. Helens, this brilliant green creation has captured the attention of jewelry designers worldwide. And as Stauer is one of the largest helenite dealers in the world, we can offer you a deal.
