Are your stones natural?

The majority of the gemstones that we offer for sale are natural.  We purchase our gemstones from a local reputable wholesale company in North Vancouver, British Columbia.    We do sell some manmade stones as well, most notably, Cubic Zirconia, Goldstone, Blue Faceted Obsidian and Opalite.


Are your stones treated?  Information below is provided by our supplier.

Most gems on the market today are treated in order to improve appearance. Treatment processes can consist of heat, irradiation, dyeing, oiling, or other processes. Detection of these treatments may be easy to nearly impossible. We do our best to disclose all processes known to us at the time of selling.
