Imagination is a powerful action to create what seems to be impossible.

On my recent trip to Rajasthan, while looking for the new ideas for my jewellery, I came across the beautiful stones – Rhodochrosite, Fossil Coral and Crazy Lace Agate.

Here I am with my new experiment with these stones.

The Crazy Lace Agate is a banded micro-crystalline quartz infused with aluminum and iron.
It usually has complex patterns and bright colors, producing swirls of golds, greys, blacks, and browns, and even the occasional reds and pinks.
Also known as Mexican Agate, the Crazy Lace Agate is quite young compared to other minerals that can be found on Earth.

It is believed to have been created some 65 to 90 million years ago.

Fossil coral is a natural type of gemstone formed by ancient corals.
When prehistoric corals are fossilized through replacement with agate, the fossil coral forms through hardened deposits left by silica-rich waters.
The entire process can take over 20 million years and occurs only under very unique geological conditions.
Corals are marine animals and it is their skeletons that are fossilized and preserved, often leaving flower-like patterns in the stone.

Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral with chemical composition MnCO3.
In its (rare) pure form, it is typically a rose-red color, but impure specimens can be shades of pink to pale brown.
Rhodochrosite forms a complete solid solution series with iron carbonate (siderite). Calcium, (as well as magnesium and zinc, to a limited extent) frequently substitutes for manganese in the structure, leading to lighter shades of red and pink, depending on the degree of substitution.
It is for this reason that the most common color encountered is pink.

These pieces are exclusive in the workshop right now and will be available on sale in a few days.
In the meanwhile, you can write to me on antimakhanna@gmail.com for any pre-order.
