Demantoid Garnet

Other Names: Uralian Emerald
Origin of Name: Greek «διαμντοειδες» meaning diamond-like
Meaning of the Stone: January Birthstone
Classification: precious gemstone
Family: Mineral
Region: Russia, Namibia, Italy
Color: light green, dark green
Transparency: Translucent, Transparent
Fracture: Conchoidal
Hardness (Gravity): 6.5-7 (3.84)
Crystal System: Cubic
Similar minerals: Andradite

1. Legend and History:

Garnet minerals have been known and used for many years; Demantoid garnet however was discovered only in 1853, in Russia, more specifically the Ural Mountains.
This gemstone grew quickly in popularity and was considered a beautiful and expensive gemstone which should be treasured by every collector.
Peter Carl Faberge, the famous jeweler had created many magnificent pieces of jewelry with demantoid garnet.

In reference to historical matters, Garnet has been cited in many findings, for example Plato had his portrait engraved on a garnet; Demntoid however has not been mentioned in mythology or history as it is believed that the first ever finding was in fact in 1853.

2. Origin in nature and use:

Demantoid is a green gemstone variety of andradite, which is a mineral of the garnet group. The reason demantoid has its beautiful dark green color is particles of chromium within its chemical formula.

Although demantoid is a green gemstone, it’s appearance in nature ranges from a yellow color to dark green, in some cases even resembling an emerald.
The usual cut for demantoid gemstones is either the emerald cut or cushion cut, as best suited for jewelry.

3. Interesting Facts:

Dematoid gemstones from the Ural Mountains, often have inclusions of chrysolite which look like golden threads that usually curve and resemble a horses tail, thus called horsetails. Horsetails are believed by some to increase the gemstone’s value, this however is probably not correct as they are nonetheless inclusions to a clear stone.

4. Care and Storing:

Such beautiful gemstones as Demantoid Garnet are best kept in presentation boxes or very soft velvet pouches, away from harder stones which may damage or scratch them. Cleaning is recommended by means of a soft cloth and warm water.

Ametrine

Other Names: Bolivianita
Meaning of the Stone: Birthstone of February and November, as it is a mix of amethyst and citrine
Classification: precious gemstone
Family: Silica, Quartz
Region: Bolivia (although easily found, there is only one deposit)
Color: Violet and yellow
Transparency: Transparent
Fracture: Conchoidal
Hardness (Gravity): 7 (2.65)
Crystal System: Amorphous
Similar minerals: amethyst, citrine

1. Legend and History:

Ametrine is a relatively new found crystal upon which not many historical events and legends have occurred; It is however said to hold the attributes of both amethyst and citrine and combine them with its own unique powers.
It is believed that ametrine reaches to the root of problems, thus allowing for it’s wearer to easily speak and solve his inner problems with people close to him.Furthermore, it’s cleansing abilities are said to dissolve negativeness, and toxins from the body.

2. Origin in nature and use:

Ametrine is a natural mixture of amethyst and citrine; the exact occurrence of the mixture is not fully known in the scientific community, and it may take decades for the exact reason of formation to be known, it is thought however to be formed by a combined effect of high pressure and temperature in deposits which hold both amethyst and citrine, thus causing the later to fuse with the first and adopt a partial area of its color. It is also considered possible that the bi-coloration of the gem is due to a difference in temperature and pressure in the course of one stone meaning in layman’s terms, that only a part of the crystal has heated to the extent to which it adopted the color of amethyst.

Most ametrine crystals are shaped in an emerald cut, however, when one cuts such crystals significant consideration must be given to the percentage of colorations; most gem cutters aim to achieve a 50-50 cut in order to preserve an equal amount of both colors, this method however quickly became too classic for buyers, but also left much ametrine unused.
Furthermore, another fact which must be known in reference to the Ametrine stone, is that much of the ametrine being sold nowadays comes from Russia, and therefore is synthetic; it has many similar physical properties to true ametrine as it is it’s natural counterpart, thus causing difficulties in identification processes. Easily identifiable “fake” ametrine however is that which seems to contain combinations of green and yellow, or light blue, as these colorations do not naturally occur.

3. Interesting Facts:

Ametrine is found in one deposit, that of the Anahi mines, in Bolivia; The Anahi mines received their name in a rather interesting manner. It is said that in the 17th century, a Spanish respected political figure received the mine as a marriage settlement of a princess from the Ayoreos tribe, the Indian tribe which lived in that area; The name of the princess was Anahi.

4. Care and Storing:

As has been mentioned above, only one deposit of ametrine exists, thus the timeframe in which such crystals will be around for is unknown, meaning that owners of such beautiful bi-colored stones should store them safely in a soft presentation box or velvet pouch, and clean the frequently with warm water and a soft cloth, paying attention to the detail, and not using toxic or alcohol based solutions.

NATURAL TURQUOISE BEAUTY

My name is Alyona and I am a jewelry designer and founder of DIDAJ Jewelry and Fashion.

I’ve been creating my unique designs for many years. It is my passion and gives me a great deal of satisfaction, especially when I see what joy it brings to my clientele, all over the world.

Although my customers vary in age and interests, they all share a common love for jewelry and a desire for beautiful things.My background, from a very young age, was in artistic expression through dance. I received a Masters Degree in Artistic Direction and Choreography, from the Kiev State Art University and was a professional performer while living in the Ukraine.

I traveled the world for five years, until I immigrated with my family to the United States, in 1993.

During my first few years there, I used my experience and education to its fullest, teaching in many of the top academies and dance schools, in the Chicago area. I also helped produce and choreograph shows for a number of ice skaters and ice dancers, some of whom went on to become the top skaters in the US.

I look to many of my life experiences for inspiration. From my fascination with art history, to my observations of nature, I draw upon a wide variety of shapes, textures, and materials, to create something unique and exciting. All the products I offer are my unique and original creations. I carefully oversee every facet of production, to give you unmatched, world class quality. I stand behind each and every product and offer my personal quality guarantee.

My new Collection brings together colorful Italian leather, Silver and Peacock Baroque Pearls, various colors of Coral, Turquoise, Amethyst, Peridot, Citrine, Aquamarine, and Tourmaline. I very proud of this new collection and hope you find it as exciting as I do.
