The Greens of March…

14K Yellow Gold with Opal, Peridot and EmeraldsNot all green stones are Emerald!

  • Tourmaline – originally brought from Sri Lanka to Europe by the Dutch East India Co. It is one of several gemstones still found and mined here in the States and occurs in other colors such as blue and pink as well as bi-color and tri-color specimens.   Learn more about Tourmaline
  • Peridot – one of a few gemstones that occur in only one color. The intensity and tint of the green depends on how much iron is in the crystal. August is the month for peridot.  Learn more about Peridot
  • Tsavorite – is the green color variety of garnet originally discovered in 1967 in Tanzania. It is rare in gem quality and more frequently seen in smaller size stones.  Learn more about Tsavorite Garnet
  • Turquoise – and of course we can’t pass by turquoise in honor of the Houston Rodeo & Livestock show!
