Agate was first found in the Dirillo River in Italy. Another name for the Dirillo River is the Achates River. You can probably guess how this gemstone got its name.

Today the largest agate sites are in Brazil, Uruguay and the United States. Agate grows when underground water with high concentrations of _silica_ seeps into rock cavities. When the water is still, the dissolved silica turns into silica gel. Over time, this silica gel crystallizes and then it becomes agate. Agate has a pretty good hardness between 6.5 and 7 on the Mohs scale. The rings or bands you see a lot in agate, is because the   composition of the substances are changing so much. The whole process ensures that there are many different variants of agate, with many different colors. And pay attention! Because sometimes these gemstones are painted in fake colors!

Agate can bring peace and stability. The stone represents concentration and stimulating spiritual growth.

Agate belongs to the constellations of Taurus and Gemini. Read more about which gemstones belong to zodiac signs here!

Amazonite is a bright green-blue variety of microcline. Microkline is an important clotting mineral that contains small amounts of sodium and grows in small prism shapes. The gray-ish or colorless microcline is often used for making porcelain. The bright blue color is due to high temperatures and the enclosed lead particles. Amazonite has a hardness of 6 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale.

The name Amazonite comes from the Amazon River. However, this gemstone has never been found in the Amazon region. The Spanish explorers who gave the Amazonite her name confused the it with another green mineral from that region. So the name Amazonite rests on a mistake! Today, this gemstone is mainly mined in Madagascar, Myanmar and Peru.

Spiritually, Amazonite is seen as the stone of balance and protection. In addition, the stone would have good effect on mood swings.

Amazonite belongs to the zodiac signs Virgo and Aquarius. Read here more about which gems belong to zodiac signs! 

NB! Amazonite should not come into contact with water too much.

Amethyst, who doesn't know this beautiful purple gemstome? It's one of our absolute favorites within team Wiezewasjes!

This purple beauty owes its color because it contains traces of iron and aluminium. Amethyst is a variant of the quartz family and has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. The gemstone owes its name to the girl Amethysta from the Greek mythology. Amethyst often grows in geodes - these are cavities inside of rocks that fill with mineral-rich water over time. In this water the crystals that we know as amethyst will slowly grow!

In addition to the purple amethyst, the chevron amethyst is a common variant. This amethyst quartz consists of zigzagging layers of amethyst alternated with layers of white quartz. Amethyst is found all over the world. The most important sites are in Uruguay and Brazil.

By heating amethyst between 300 and 400 degrees, it loses its purple color and turns brown / yellow to orange. We then call it heated amethyst or burnt amethyst. It is sometimes mistakenly sold as citrine. Even though citrine is a lot scarcer and therefore more expensive.

On a spiritual level, amethyst is known to be protective and purifying. The gemstone is said to promote self knowledge and helps you to be honest with yourself. If you have trouble sleeping or often suffer from headaches, wearing amethyst could help.

Amethyst is associated with the zodiac signs Virgo and Pisces. Read more on which gemstones match which zodiac signs on this page!

Amethyst may discolour when exposed to (bright) sunlight.

OK y’all, listen up and do it well, we staan op het punt je in te wijden in de dieper intriges van de chalcedoon en geloof ons: soap opera’s zijn er niks bij vergeleken. 😱  Chalcedoon is lid van de zeer uitgebreide kwartsfamilie en heeft dan ook een hardheid van 6-7 op de schaal van Mohs. Het heeft zijn naam te danken aan de stad Chalcedon in het vroegere Asia Minor, wat nu de Istanbul-regio in Turkije is. Onbewerkte chalcedoon is te herkennen aan zijn witgrijze tot lichtblauwe semi-transparante lagen. Onbewerkt? Yes indeed, houdt dit nog even in gedachten, hier komen we later op terug!

Last van onbeheersbare emoties die de pan uit rijzen? Chalcedoon is je steen! Chalcedoon wordt gezien als de steen van de communicatie en evenwichtige emoties. Daarnaast ondersteunt het creatieve uitingen en zorgt het ervoor dat je jezelf kan blijven.

Chalcedoon heeft een aantal broers en zussen die grotendeels dezelfde fysieke eigenschappen hebben maar die door natuurlijke omstandigheden tijdens het ontstaan een andere kleur hebben gekregen. Dit zijn onder andere onyx (zwart-wit), carneool (oranje-rood-wit), sardonyx/sard/sarder (vergelijkbaar met maar donkerder dan carneool) en chrysopraas (appelgroen). Daarnaast staan ook de bekende agaat en jaspis vrij dicht bij chalcedoon (de kwartsfamilie is nou eenmaal vrij hecht 😜).

Still following? We komen nu namelijk bij het bewerkt/onbewerkt gedeelte: men is al erg lang gefascineerd door mineralen en as one does proberen we ook al erg lang om mineralen nog mooier te maken. In mooie vormen slijpen, poetsen, insmeren, verhitten, kleuren en zelfs mineralen op elkaar plakken om zo nieuwe edelstenen te vormen. Chalcedoon bleek uitermate geschikt te zijn om te kleuren. Anders dan bij andere gekleurde edelstenen (waar de kleur met alcohol, water of aceton makkelijk te wissen is) verandert de aangebrachte kleur bij chalcedoon niet of nauwelijks (believe me, ik heb zojuist een halfuur met nagellakremover over een gekleurde chalcedoon gewreven en er is niks veranderd)! Dit heeft ertoe geleid dat er vandaag de dag een hele reeks aan prachtig gekleurde chalcedonen op de markt te vinden is onder verschillende namen:

Aqua chalcedoon (semi-transparant turkoois)
Blauwe chalcedoon (semi-transparant blauw)
Roze chalcedoon (semi-transparant lichtroze)
Gele onyx (semi-transparant geel)
Groene onyx (semi-transparant fles-groen)
Zwarte onyx (ondoorzichtig zwart)
Rode onyx (semi-transparant oranje-rood) 

Van deze gekleurde chalcedonen kunnen vooral de zwarte en rode onyx voor een hoop verwarring zorgen. De zwarte onyx vanwege zijn overeenkomende naam met de “echte” onyx. Mag een zwart gekleurde chalcedoon dan wel onyx genoemd worden? Jep, indien er zwart of black voor staat is het algemeen geaccepteerd en kan je ervan uitgaan dat het dus om een gekleurde chalcedoon gaat. De rode onyx is makkelijk te verwarren met “echte” carneool en wordt helaas ook veel aangeboden op de markt onder deze naam, dit komt mede doordat carneool voor het gemak ook wel rode onyx genoemd wordt #babylonischespraakverwarring. Tip om de stenen uit elkaar te halen: de gekleurde chalcedonen zijn vaak helemaal effen van kleur terwijl de “echte” stenen meer kleurverschil en structuur hebben. Dit is goed te zien als je er met tegenlicht doorheen kijkt.

Chalcedoon wordt onder andere in Brazilië, Madagaskar, Uruguay, India, de VS, Groot-Brittannië en Namibië gevonden.

Chalcedoon hoort bij de sterrenbeelden Kreeft, Boogschutter en Tweelingen. Lees hier meer over welke edelstenen bij sterrenbeelden horen!

Chrysoprase is a green Chalcedony that derives its name from the Greek words for “golden apple” or “golden leek”. Chrysoprase is a stone of the heart and said to encourage growth and forgiveness. This gem could be a great companion during times of heartbreak.

Citrine is the sunray of gemology! This beautiful gemstone belongs to the quartz family and has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. Citrine can be recognized by its transparent lemon-yellow to orange-brown color, due to the aluminum particles.

Citrine is named after citrus (you can probably guess why) and is therefore also known as lemon quartz. Citrine is very close in structure and formation to its fellow quartz amethyst and smoky quartz. There are also intergrowths between smoky quartz and citrine called smokey citrine.

There is some dispute about when the gemstone may or may not be called citrine. 'Real' citrine is pretty rare. In fact, in scientific circles it is said that if you didn't see the citrine coming out of the mine in its true color yellow, you can assume that it's a burnt amethyst. 

When amethyst is heated above 300 degrees, it gets a yellow color. If it is heated above 550 degrees, the amethyst can even get a dark yellow color! Can these heated amethysts bear the name citrine? Yes, officially these can be called citrine - but only if there is open communication about this process!

Citrine is one of the most positive gemstones. It stands for relaxation, extroversion and positivity. It symbolizes the sun and warmth. Within the spiritual side of gemology, opinions are strongly divided about whether a burnt amethyst can be attributed the same energy as a natural citrine. One says that a burnt amethyst loses its amethyst energy and acquires those of a 'real' citrine. Another one thinks that a burnt amethyst would have the same energy but a little weaker than a 'real' citrine. Another popular opinion is that a burnt amethyst has combination of energetic powers, both from the citrin and the amethyst. We believe that a gemstone mainly carries the value that we attach to it ourselves. So, we leave it up to you! 

Citrine belongs to the constellations Gemini and Leo. Read more about which gemstones belong to zodiac signs here!

NB! Citrine can lose its yellow color with sunlight.

‘...breathe in… breathe out…’ The rumbling sea, a babbling brook.. It’s the weekend or a holiday, or no, it’s… Dumorierite! This blue beauty belongs to the nesosilicates, is pretty rare, and pretty amaaaaazing! This gemstone was named after the French palaeontologist Eugene Dumortier, who discovered the mineral near his home. The stone is also found captured in quartz, this variation is called dumorierite quartz. Dumortierite is known for its opaque blue colour and can look a lot like lapis lazuli or sodalite.

Dumorierite is known to turn white when heated and is, therefore, often used in ceramics!

Did you know that dumorierite was referred to in Africa as ‘water turned to stone’? For some magical and mysterious reason, this gemstone was always found near water!

It is the stone for all people that could use some rest and relaxation.

Welcome to the exceptional, somewhat confusing world of garnets. Let's get straight to the point. Because we want to eliminate a major misconception: garnet is not one type of gemstone. Garnet is the name of a mineral group that belongs to the nesosilicates, which are gemstones with a hardness between 6.5-7.5 on the Mohs scale! Garnets come in many different colors and sizes, transparent and non-transparent. The most famous garnets can be divided into two groups:

Pyralspiet: pyrope, almandine and spessartite
Ugrandite: uvarorite, grossular and andradite

We now focus on the beloved, clear, red gemstones that we are selling as garnets on our website - the pyrope! These gemstones have a wine red color or a bright red color. Pyropes are also sometimes sold under misleading names such as: Cape ruby, Californian ruby, Arizona ruby ​​or the Rocky Mountain ruby. They can look very similar, but beware: garnets are definitely not rubies! Garnets are mined all over the world.

Also, there are several interesting theories and myths about the origin of garnets. The first myth is that they were harvested by _mountain spirits_. During the harvesting of the garnet, there has to be an offer to the mountain spirits in order to be completed. In the second myth, according to Hildegard von Bingen, garnets would arise from a lunar eclipse during ominous times. Perhaps that is why this stone is so good in times of crisis! Garnets are said to support willpower, survival instinct, positivity, courage and passion. And the name garnet? It is inspired by the pomegranate, because of the beautiful red color!

Garnet belongs to the zodiac signs Aries, Leo and Scorpio. Read more about which gemstones belong to zodiac signs here!

lapis lazuli

Op zoek naar een knappe, donkere vreemdeling die al je dromen waar zal maken? Look no further, bestemming is bereikt! Lapis Lazuli wordt al werkelijk millennia lang gemijnd en gewaardeerd als edelsteen. De oudst bekende mijnen stammen uit een indrukwekkende 7000 BC in wat nu Afghanistan is. Niet heel gek dat dus dat het de nationale steen van dit land is! Lapis is afgeleid van het Latijnse woord voor steen, Lazuli komt van het Perzische Lãžward, een millennia oude vindplaats van de steen. Fun fact: veel hedendaagse benamingen van de kleur blauw, zowel in het Nederlands als andere talen, zijn afgeleid van Lapis Lazuli. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan azuurblauw, het Franse azur, het Engelse azure, het Spaanse azul en het Italiaanse azzurro. Lapis bestaat uit een combi van verschillende gesteentes: voornamelijk lazuriet, sodaliet, calciet, pyriet en marmer. Hierdoor behoort het tot de veldspaatvervangers ofwel veldspatoïdes. Met een hardheid van 5-5.5 op de schaal van Mohs is het een vrij zachte steen, dus pas op met krassen! Lapis lazuli is te herkennen aan zijn opake en intense blauwe verschijning. Deze heeft het te danken aan het mineraal lazuriet. Het kan goudkleurige spikkels bevatten (pyriet) en heeft vaak ook witte of lichtblauwe delen (sodaliet, calciet en marmer). Volledig blauwe lapis lazuli staat bekend als Royal Blue, lapis met veel calciet wordt chili lapis genoemd. Verder staat de steen ook bekend als lazuursteen of enkel lapis.      

Lapis staat symbool voor de nachtelijke sterrenhemel en de rivier de Nijl en is onlosmakelijk verbonden met de Egyptische hemelgodin Noet en haar collega-godin Ma’at (godin van de waarheid, orde en rechtspraak). Volgens de oermoeder van de Europese edelsteenkunde, St. Hildegard von Bingen, heeft lapis lazuli een positieve werking op de ogen. Daarnaast zou het helpen bij ongewenste romantische aandacht. De steen staat voor oprechte en liefdevolle relaties. Lapis zou ondersteunen in integriteit, het denkproces, intelligentie, concentratie, zelfvertrouwen, optimisme en meditatie. Een fantastische handlanger is in moeilijke en stressvolle tijden. 

Lapis Lazuli wordt onder andere in Afghanistan, Chili, China en Centraal-Azië gevonden.

Lapis Lazuli hoort bij de sterrenbeelden Maagd en Boogschutter. Lees hier meer over welke edelstenen bij sterrenbeelden horen!

Limonite is not actually one mineral; it is a collective term for iron and oxygen hydroxides. The name Limonite is derived from the Greek word for meadow or swamp as the mineral is often found in these places. This mineral is orange to brown and sometimes even has an earthy red colour similar to clay. The depth of the colour is determined by the amount of iron that is present in each specimen. 
Limonite has been used for over 4,000 years. Neolithic cave paintings have shown us that Limonite was used as yellow, brown, and red pigment. 
Limonite is thought to hold us close to Mother Earth and provide the necessary strength to stick up for ourselves and move forward during situations of stress and overwhelming anxiety. This mineral’s empowering energy may offer a swift adjustment resulting in increased confidence levels in addition to better decision-making capabilities.

Limonite is very common and can be found all throughout the world, with major deposits located in Austria, France, Australia, the United States, Brazil, and the island of Cyprus.

Limonite is best not exposed to water. 


Few stones are as popular as the Moonstone! This beauty generally consists of tiny layers of two types of feldspar: orthoclase and albite and belongs to the feldspar subfamily orthoclase. The different layers create the moonshine-like shine (officially called adularescence) from which the stone gets its name, some stones can also have a cat's eye shine! Moonstone comes into its own when the cabochon is cut and is also called adulaar (after the Adula Alps in Switzerland), hecatolite (after the Greek moon goddess Hecate) and Chandrakanta (Hindi for "woman of the moon"). This orthoclase has a hardness of 6-6.5 on the mohs scale and comes in peach, white, brown, gray, black, green and blue. In some cases, the blue moonstones can hardly be distinguished from the also very popular rainbow moonstone, but this is a white variant of labradorite!

Besides that this gemstone is incredibly beautiful, it is also a very versatile stone. Stories of moonstone date back to ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, India, Sri Lanka, China, and the Middle East. They wore it to befriend the Moon gods, tied it around trees and plants to promote the harvest and above all saw it as a real woman's stone.

What does the gemstone stand for? Moonstone is said to symbolize feminine energy, the moon, empathy, intuition, marital bliss and human knowledge. Finally, moonstone could help you find your true love, so move over Tinder, moonstone is in da house!

Moonstone is found in the Alps, Australia, Austria, China, Finland, India, Japan, Mexico, Myanmar, Norway, Poland, Sri Lanka and the United States.

Moonstone belongs to the zodiac signs Cancer, Capricorn and Pisces. read here more about which gems belong to zodiac signs!


Malachiet was our first love and it’ll be our last… Deze kopercarbonaat heeft een hardheid van 3.5-4.5 op de schaal van Mohs en wordt al heeeeeeeel lang als siersteen gewaardeerd. Maar echt, de oudst gevonden (tot nu toe dan hé) tot sieraad verwerkte malachiet is een +\-10.600(!) jaar oude kraal. De naam malachiet is waarschijnlijk met wat omwegen terug te leiden naar het Griekse malakós, wat zacht betekent. Deze beauty wordt gevonden in de buurt van koperafzettingen, waar het ook zijn prachtige groen gestreepte uiterlijk aan te danken heeft. Malachiet wordt vaak samen met turkoois, azuriet en chrysocolla gevonden, wat vergroeiingen als malacolla en eilatsteen kan vormen.

Malachiet wordt geassocieerd met vrouwelijkheid en is in de loop der tijd gelinkt aan een hele rits godinnen. In het oude Egypte met de godin Hathor, in de Griekse mythologie met de godinnen Aphrodite en Artemis, in het oude Rome met Venus. In de Russische Oeral regio bestaat een rijke folklore over de Mistress of the copper mountain aka the Malachite maid. Naast dat het dus goed is voor een eventuele divine intervention zou malachiet ook een positief effect hebben op je vermogen tot nadenken. Ook zou het communicatie met dieren verbeteren. Malachiet zou een goede invloed op de menstruatie, vruchtbaarheid en zwangerschap hebben. So embrace your inner goddess and go green or go home, malachiet is awesome en een blijvertje in onze collectie!

Malachiet wordt eigenlijk op alle continenten gevonden, de belangrijkste mijnplaatsen bevinden zich in de kopergordel in centraal Afrika.

Malachiet hoort bij de sterrenbeelden Waterman, Weegschaal, Stier en Schorpioen. Lees hier meer over welke edelstenen bij sterrenbeelden horen! 

De lage hardheid en poreuze samenstelling van malachiet maken dat het een kwetsbare steen is die slecht tegen stoten/krassen en vloeistoffen kan.

Malacolla  is a combination of chrysocolla and malachite. To find out more, see the description of these gemstones. It is best not to expose malacolla to water.


obsidian is a shiny glassy volcanic stone with a hardness of 5 to 5.5. This stone owes its name to the prominent Roman Obsius and has been used for making spearheads and other tools since the Paleolithic Age.

The majority of obsidian has a black to dark brown color, but this stone can also be found in green or gray. Due to slight color and structure differences, one is a wide range of different types of obsidian. The best known types are: black, snowflake, mahogany, rainbow and gold obsidian.

Obsidian represents grounding and cleansing of negativity. Black obsidian is sometimes referred to as a psychic vacuum cleaner. Obsidian can help you recognize where you are holding negative energy and thoughts and help release anger, greed, fear and resentment. This gemstone has a protective energy that could help you stay close to yourself when exposed to negativity.


It’s tall, dark and handsome en het matcht. Werkelijk. Overal. Bij! We hebben het natuurlijk over de donkere schoonheid onyx (niet te verwarren met de Pokémon, gotta catch ‘m all!). Onyx behoort tot de zeer uitgebreide kwarts familie (specifieker een chalcedoon variëteit) en heeft een hardheid van 7 op de schaal van Mohs. Interessant weetje: zand bestaat grotendeels uit kwarts en is bijna overal aanwezig, ook in stof. Pas dus op met stenen/materialen met een hardheid lager dan 7, deze kunnen bekrast raken tijdens het afstoffen. De naam onyx is afgeleid van de Griekse term onyx, wat vingernagel betekent. De steen is te herkennen aan zijn opake zwarte voorkomen, vaak zijn er witte en/of grijze lagen in de steen te zien, deze lijken op de witte halve maantjes van je vingernagels. Echte onyx is vrij zeldzaam, de meeste zwarte stenen die in sieraden worden verwerkt zijn zwarte/black onyx. Dit is een door de mens bewerkte chalcedoon die voor het gemak dezelfde naam draagt. Je kan hier meer over lezen onder het kopje Chalcedoon!

Onyx wordt concentratie bevorderende eigenschappen toegekend. Daarnaast zou onyx ook een positief effect hebben op alle “het-glas-is-half-leeg-people” onder ons: Onyx zou ondersteunen in het omzetten van negativiteit in positiviteit!

Onyx wordt onder andere gevonden in Argentinië, Brazilië, Madagaskar, Mexico, Uruguay, de VS en Pakistan.


An opal is a very precious gemstone containing silica and water. The amount of water varies by every type of opal. Because of that, this gemstone has no crystal structure. On the Mohs scale, this gemstone has hardness between 5 and 6.5. The Romans gave it its name. They predicted opals as "opalus," which translates to ''precious gemstone''. A name that this gemstone certainly deserves!

The largest and most expensive opal ever found is called the Olympic Australis. This opal is 28 cm long, 12 cm thick and 11.5 cm wide! You may have heard of it: the black opal. The main source of opal is Ethiopia, but the most coveted opal comes from Australia. A high quality black opal is more unique than most diamonds. So you can imagine that you have to save some money before you can be empowered with a piece of jewelry with a black opal.

On our website you will also find dendrite opal. Dendrite opal is a white opal without the opal shiny colorful characteristics. Dendrites are fern-like inclusions of iron, manganese, or other metal oxides that form a beautiful pattern.

regenboog maansteen

Let’s talk Regenboog Maansteen! Er zijn maar weinig edelstenen zo populair als de regenboog maansteen! Vele theorieën, mythes en discussies heersen over deze edelsteen, wat hem eigenlijk des te interessanter maakt! Of deze beauty nu eigenlijk een witte labradoriet of een ‘echte’ maansteen variant is, zullen we je zo simpel mogelijk proberen uit te leggen!

Als we het over de regenboog maanstenen hebben, kunnen het eigenlijk twee verschillende mineralen zijn. Erg verwarrend dus! De regenboog maansteen kan een labradoriet variant óf een maansteen variant zijn. De maansteen variant is mineralogisch een combinatie van orthoklaas met albiet en behoort tot de groep van de alkali-veldspaten. Labradoriet is een combinatie van anorthiet met albiet en behoort tot de groep van de plagioklaas-veldspaten. Ze zijn dus qua samenstelling bijna (maar niet helemaal) hetzelfde! Met het blote oog is het verschil in ieder geval niet te ontdekken. Beide groepen worden verkocht onder de naam regenboog maansteen. Wil je weten welke jij in je bezit hebt? Dan zal je een microscopisch onderzoekje moeten doen!

De regenboog maansteen bestaat dus uit minuscule lagen van twee soorten veldspaat. Deze verschillende laagjes creëren de typische maneschijn-glans (officieel adularescence of Schiller-effect genoemd), waar de steen zijn naam aan te danken heeft. Deze glans komt vooral goed tot zijn recht als de steen cabochon geslepen is.

Regenboog maanstenen hebben ook nog eens verschillende bijnamen, zoals bijvoorbeeld Adulaar, welke verwijst naar de vindplaast in de Adula-Alpen in Zwitserland of Hecatoliet, welke verwijst naar de Griekse maangodin Hecate of Chandrakanta, welke in Hindi staat voor “vrouw van de maan”.

Er gaan mythes dat men regenboog maansteen droeg om de Maangoden te vriend te houden. En in sommige landen was het gebruikelijk om maansteen om bomen en planten te binden om de oogst te bevorderen. Het wordt op de meeste plekken bovenal als een echte vrouwensteen gezien.

Op spiritueel gebied staat de regenboog maansteen voor vrouwelijke energie, de maan, empathie, intuïtie, huwelijksgeluk en mensenkennis. De regenboog maansteen hoort bij de sterrenbeelden Kreeft, Steenbok en Vissen. Lees hier meer over welke edelstenen bij sterrenbeelden horen!

Beide varianten van de regenboog maansteen worden onder andere in de Franse -en Oosterijkse Alpen, Australië, China, Finland, India, Japan, Mexico, Myanmar, Noorwegen, Polen, Sri Lanka en de Verenigde Staten gevonden. Hij heeft een hardheid van 6 tot 6.5 op schaal van Mohs.

The name Rhodochrosite refers to the Greek words for its rose-red colour. However, Rhodochrosite can be found in a wide array of colours, ranging from pink to red and yellowish, orange or brown. As pink is the colour expression of love, virtually all pink stones relate to this theme, and therefore, so does Rhodochrosite.
This stone stands for self-love and compassion and is said to help with emotional healing and the recovery of lost memories and forgotten gifts. Rhodochrosite carries a tender and loving energy that soothes the heart and comforts the soul. This gemstone might be a great friend when you need some help with self-forgiveness and feel like rediscovering some of that childlike playfulness!

Though the most important deposit of Rhodochrosite is in Argentina, this gemstone is also found in Africa, Brazil, Peru, Russia, Romania, and the United States.


This pink gemstone decorates lots of Russian palaces. Rhodonite’s name is derived from the Greek ‘rhodon’ (pink), and it belongs to the inosilicates. This babushka can be recognised by its opaque, salmon pink colour (thanks to manganese) with black dendrite details that stand out. There are also transparent rhodonites, but those are very rare. With its density of 6 on the Mohs scale, it is a relatively soft gemstone. Rhodonite has the reputation of being one of the most challenging stones to facet, which is why most stones are polished cabochon.

Not only is this beauty used in jewellery quite a lot, but it is also very suitable as decoration. They were huge fans of rhodonite in Tsarist Russia. Huge rhodonite vases, lamps, ornaments and even sarcophaguses stem from that time period. Some of which can be admired in the Hermitage in Sint Petersburg.

Traditionally, rhodonite is seen as the stone of luck and happiness. It has a soft energy that slowly but certainly softens the raw edges of intense experiences. Rhodonite is like a warm blanket to psychological wounds. This stone is said to strengthen compassion, patience, intuition, and emotional balance. Are you in need of some sincere, tender energy? Rhodonite is the cuddly grandma that everybody secretly needs in their life.

Amongst others, rhodonite can be found in Russia, China, Australia, Japan, Sweden, Tanzania, the United States, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, South-Africa and the United Kingdom.


Een robijn is één van de varianten van het mineraal korund. De twee bekendste korund soorten zijn robijnen (rood) en saffieren (blauw). Korund is van zichzelf een kleurloze, harde edelsteen. Máár! Door de toevoeging van verschillende metaalsoorten kan het verschillende kleuren krijgen. Zo krijgt de korund robijn zijn rode kleur door chroomdeeltjes. En wanneer ze
een bruine tint hebben, komt dat door het ijzergehalte. Robijnen scoren 9 op de hardheidsschaal van Mohs. Aardig hard dus!

De naam is afgeleid van het Latijnse woord ruber, wat "rood" betekend. Vroeger mocht de steen alleen de naam Robijn krijgen als hij helder en bloedrood van kleur was. Tegenwoordig hebben alle rood getinte korund stenen de naam robijn. Korund robijn heeft geen specifieke afkomst, hij wordt namelijk gevonden over de hele wereld!

Robijnen staan spiritueel gezien voor kracht en energie. Deze edelsteen staat symbool voor geluk! Woorden die veel geassocieerd worden met robijn zijn: hartstocht, spanning, levendigheid, spontaniteit, dynamisch.

Robijn hoort bij de sterrenbeelden Ram en Schorpioen. Lees hier meer over welke edelstenen bij sterrenbeelden horen!

rose quartz

Voor rozenkwarts heeft natuurlijk iedereen een beetje een zwakke plek in zijn hart. Deze kwartsvariant heeft de lichtroze tot rozerode kleur te danken aan titanium, chroom en mangaan. Het is semi-transparant, erg troebel en is te herkennen aan een gebarsten structuur. Rozenkwarts heeft een hardheid van 7 op de schaal van Mohs en is fotosensitief. Dit betekend dat de prachtige roze kleur kan verbleken als het te veel met UV licht in aanraking komt, pas dus op met zonlicht! Het is mogelijk dat hogere kwaliteit rozenkwartsen minuscule rutiel haartjes bevatten, dit creëert een kattenoog effect dat ook wel bekend staat als een zesstralige ster of asterisme. Rozenkwarts heeft zijn naam te danken aan de kleur roze en zou dus, arguably, ook als rozekwarts gespeld kunnen worden! Deze edelsteen is het zusje van de bergkristal en de amethist, twee andere kwarts varianten. De meest kwalitatieve rozenkwartsen worden gewonnen op Madagascar, maar er zijn vindplaatsen over de hele wereld!

Rozenkwarts is de edelsteen die al eeuwen symbool staat voor de liefde! In de Griekse en Romeinse tijd dacht men dat rozenkwarts door de godin Venus - de godin van de liefde - op aarde was gebracht. spiritueel gezien staat rozenkwarts voor schoonheid, kwetsbaarheid en onvoorwaardelijke zelfliefde.

Smaragden zijn dan ook te herkennen aan de typerende smaragdgroene kleur! De stenen komen zowel transparant als opaak voor. Hoe helderder de steen, hoe meer hij waard is! De naam smaragd komt waarschijnlijk van het Griekse Smaragdos wat groene steen betekent. 

Dat smaragd synoniem staat voor royalty had ook Cleopatra al door.

“… I seem to be what I’m not, you see…” When The Platters released their single ‘The Great Pretender’ in 1955, this sentence could just as well have been about our con artist. Why? Because there are few gemstones with such an illustrious career as Spinel! Firstly, spinel is not just one gemstone, but, like garnet, actually involves a group of minerals. This group contains, amongst others: gahnite, hercynite, ceylonite and galaxite. Secondly, this beauty has worked itself up from the deeper nooks of the earth into the comfortable setting of many crown jewels under the pretence of being a ruby or sapphire. Below, you can find a list of the most famous spinels:

The Black Princess Ruby: a red spinel of 170 carats on the British Imperial State crown

The Timur Ruby: a red spinel of 361 carats on a necklace that belongs to the British Queen Victoria

The Imperial Crown of Russia contains a red spinel of 398.72 carats

The St.-Wenzel crown of the Bohemian crown jewels contains 44 spinels

Even though spinel belongs to the oxides, just like the two Korunds, it is slightly softer despite its impressive density of 8 on the Mohs scale. The century-old misconception is understandable, though: spinel is mostly found in the same mines as korund, is also found in both transparent and opaque form and, finally, also exists in almost every colour shade. From blue to purple to red, they all speak to our imaginations strongly. When a virtually shadowless pink-red type of spinel surfaced in Myanmar during the second Star Wars craze, it was lovingly named the Jedi-spinel (‘cause it ain’t got no dark side).

Spinel is Augusts’ birthstone and associated with the 22nd marriage anniversary. This powerhouse has been assigned a strong manly energy. It gives power, activates, and is believed to be a great shield against negative feelings. In the same way that the stone has fought its way up courageously, wearing a spinel represents courage, wealth, and success! It is clear that the spinel belongs to gemstones’  absolute royalty, so let’s wave and may the force be with you!

Spinel can be found worldwide. The most important mines, however, are located in Asia.

A sunstone is an oligoclase feldspar and is related to the moonstone and the labradorite. A sunny and simmering beauty! This peach to orange shimmering sunstone is named after the glistening of the sun. Myths tell us that the Vikings (800-1100) used a sunstone as a compass to determine their course at sea.
