Raw and Rough Gemstones
Here is where it all begins. Miners dig or cut big rocks from the mines. These Rocks are then transported to the ground level where they are sorted for the good, bad and the ugly. The bigger better rocks are then broken down to smaller sizes. These rocks then travel from continents to continents to reach stone cutters. A rough stone is cut and polished by expert hands in many different shapes and sizes. Those cut stones then make their way in to precious and semi-precious metals before they travel thousands of miles to reach the store showcases and online marketplaces where you buy them.
When we add to it the age of these rocks in terms of millions of years it is hard not to appreciate these gifts the creator of this universe has stored in our little earth.
Gem Avenue brings you the raw and rough stones so you can own pieces that are packed with beauty and love. When you hold such a raw stone you get to remember the origin and the path it took to reach you and the enormous hands that has touched with love and care. Every time you wear a piece of jewelry with a labradorite stone you will be reminded of the Raw Labradorite rock that was converted to the Gem you wear in your necklace.
Enjoy shopping Gem Avenue.
