Since durability is important to consider when choosing a stone for a jewellery item worn daily, we have noted hardness levels noted with *
Montana/Australian Sapphires | 9 *
Such an amazing range of watery blues and greens with some strong colour change. We just can’t get enough of these exquisite sapphires! (There are a limited selection of unique Montana Sapphires in our East Vancouver studio waiting for you special mermaid brides!)
Alexandrite | 8.5/9 *
An absolutely mysterious stone, high hardness with an amazing colour change quality – from a dark purple to bright green depending on the lighting. This stone is truly magical.
Blue Topaz | 8 *
Topaz is a symbol of love and affection, and has been said to be an aid to ones sweetness and disposition
Aquamarine | 7.5/8 *
The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning "water of the sea," and refers to its sparkling ocean-like color. The pale blue, transparent crystal is a member of the Beryl family.
Spinel 7.5/8 * | This stone, much like sapphire, comes in an array of different colours and has beautiful brilliance
Zircon | 7.5 *
This stone is considered the oldest mineral on earth and is found in the crust of the earth.
Tourmaline | 7/7.5 *
Do you want to know something truly magical? This stone has the strange ability to generate an electric charge and emit negative ions and far infrared rays.
Chrysoprase | 6.5/7 *
This stone is known to proved encouragement.
Blue Chalcedony | 6.5/7 *
Chalcedony comes in all colours but the ocean blue/green tone of this stone is a mystical sight indeed. Calming like the sea, some earrings made of this would surely make you feel like a mermaid
Labradorite | 6/6.5 *
This stone is composed of many fractured layers. Colour play that you see is caused by a light ray entering a layer and being refracted back and forth by deeper layers. This refracted ray is slowed by the extra travel through the layers and mixes with other rays to produce a light ray coming out that has a different wave length than when it went in. SO COOL!
Moonstone | 6/6.5 *
Moonstone is of the same family as Labradorite – they are both feldspars however they are composed of different elements. Adularescence is the name given to the magical glow that moonstones have.
Opal | 5.5/6.5 *
Synthetics are a much more durable & cost effective stone than natural. Natural opals require very special care. Opal is an amorphous form of silica, chemically similar to quartz, but containing 3% to 21% water within its mineral structure. Synthetics have more stable colouring.
Turquoise | 5/6 *
Turquoise is such an enchanting stone with its rich colour
