Before there was animal life there was nature and before that, rocks and mountains. Minerals and stones and different chemicals and elements swarming around. And these are the same minerals that are in us. This is also what comprises the gems and stones from today. Polished gemstones, faceted, beads, nuggets, drop shapes, carvings and décor. It’s really ancient and a true piece of history. The location of a piece of stone is also a geographical record as well as historical, once the elements are all broken down and examined.
