Gem Stones

Guest Post by Cori Kindred
 
i've been a little obsessed with pretty gem stones lately (see: my handmade *rock collection* pieces in poppytalk's here comes the sun market).  i think it's because some of them literally look like sparkly candy, but they're from the earth!  what an amazing planet we live on.  here are a few of my recent favorite gem stone images:

clementine's future jewelry pieces (via modish)

~ rock texture paintings by britt kee

I share your passion for gems. I'm especially obsessed with tourmaline - one gem, many many colours. Fluorite it the same - so many shades of green, blue and purple but all the same gemstone.

These images are wonderful and so tempting and the sculpture blew me away. It reminded me a little of a 3D version of Altair design colouring books I had as a child.

Me too! It brings back a childhood memory, but they also look absolutely gorgeous in collections or as jewelry.

Love this post!

I love all of this! I still have my rock collection from when I was a kid. I'm pretty certain it is what inspired me to make jewelry. I just bought an awesome garnet in schist not long ago that I just want to touch all the time. I love gemstones! Thanks for this post!

the surprise of seeing a Geode being cracked open never gets old. My favorite forever - Malachite.

YESSSSS I am so in love with those crystal bullet necklaces...but definitely cannot swing the $310 that they cost. Maybe this is the wrong question to be asking, but has anyone seen similar necklace designs for much cheaper anywhere?

Oh, thank you so much for including my photo here, Cori! We clearly share a gem passion ;) Jena from Modish claimed that black stone, but the big round amethyst is set in silver and in my shop right now!
