Testimonials

Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Liz

Obsidian Gemstone Beads, Pendants and Cabochons

Premium quality wholesale Obsidian gemstone beads, pendants and cabochons for jewelry making and designing. Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Obsidian is dark green to brown or black and is formed when volcanic lava comes in contact with water. Iron and magnesium give obsidian its color. It is not only used currently in jewelry design, it is also used in dating since it weathers slowly and uniformly. The thickness of the weathered layers produced over time can be compared to a standard. Small obsidian nuggets that have been smoothed and rounded by wind and water are often referred to as Apache Tears. Obsidian occurs most notably in Iceland, Italy, Japan, Java, Mexico, Scotland and the U.S.A. It has been implied that obsidian may be used for gaining a clearer insight into problems. Some maintain that it can help improve vision, and aid the stomach and intestines.
