Wabi Sabi 033
A very rare deep green 0.59 carat Demantoid Garnet from Iran faceted by artist John Bailey in his own special design and installed in grey Basalt collected on the Oregon coast.
Demantoid Garnet, one of the rarest of all gemstones, are usually small (under 1 carat). It has a powerful sparkle and dispersion even greater than Diamond. It is thought to have protective and abundance-generating affects on the wearer.
Basalt is hardened lava – turning fire into solid rock – and the richest soil. It is a stone of courage, transformation, perseverance, and character.
