HAPPY EARTH DAY- TAKE A LOOK INTO OUR PRECIOUSTONE ROOM

What makes a precioustone so unique? 

Well, each Antolini Precioustone is handcrafted in Italy by cutting the individual geodes into puzzle shape pieces and gluing them together with a high quality resin. Even upon closer inspection of the slabs you notice that the glue itself holds smaller pieces of the same geode, this is to reduce discoloration and minimize waste throughout the process.

Shown in our vault the display of light shining through the slabs is a great and creative method to enhance the natural appeal of the material with a bit of flash, all the slabs shown are backlit using a series of LED panels to give an even glow and reduce heat emission and lower energy costs.
