I have always had a deep affinity for 'dirt'.  Ive always loved kicking it around, getting muddy in it, picking up pretty pebbles, shells, rocks and trying to find the mystery in them.  My career in the wine industry, certainly enhanced my dirt obsession; learning so much more about it, why and what is where it is and geologically how this comes about.  Natural progression into the wonders of said dirt.  Gemstones are just another expression of the earth itself, although some precious gemstones came to us from meteorites (black diamonds and peridot).   I have and am studying gemology which i fascinating as it involves historical geological changes and chemistry to explain why some gemstones form in certain colours, or many colours.  I hope you enjoy my love of gemstones and the jewellery on my site.
