Malachite is a bright, opaque green and is only found underground in specific geological circumstances involving the water table. The stone is so green, it got its name because it resembled the leaves of the Mallow plant. Malachite is an excellent choice for a splash of colour in your natural aesthetic ring.
Turquoise is so unique it has a colour named after itself. Turquoise is an opaque, greenish-blue mineral. It has been used in ornamenting jewelry and other luxury objects for thousands of years all over the world. It was one of the first gems to be mined by human beings and has been used to adorn jewelry in ancient China, Egypt, and among many indigenous peoples in North America. This tough, historically significant gem adds an excellent splash of colour to any piece of jewelry.
While not technically a stone, mother of pearl has a unique sheen to it that can come of hundreds of different hues that work excellently with wood jewelry. Also known as Nacre, it is a material that is both organic and inorganic, usually made by molluscs, and is also makes up the same outer coating that covers pearls. This material is connected to the earth’s huge, enduring biological history and can come in virtually any colour in the rainbow
