Brrr! It's been so cold in Minnesota...below zero every day this week! I went through the Starbucks drive through to get something to warm me up, and after finally getting to the order window, my car window wouldn't go down; it was frozen shut! You've gotta love Minnesota weather. I happen to be in the line of work that sends me to lovely Arizona every February to escape the bitter cold. I encourage you to stop by our booths to see us! We have so many NEW & beautiful things; Red Line Sodalite, Ametrine, Kunzite, Jet, some funky shapes, and much more!

Stone of the Month

 

February's Stone of the Month:

 

New Brazil Agate: Found as sizable geodes of layered nodules in Brazil. These occur in brownish tones inter-layered with white and gray.  

 

 

Quartz forms within these nodules, creating a striking specimen.

 

In the turn of the 20th century, the German area of Idar-Orbestein imported large quantities of agate from Brazil on an industrial scale using the stone as ship's ballast.  

 

During that time, they produced colored beads that were sold around the globe by making use of a variety of proprietary chemical processes.

 

  

 

 

 

 

Upcoming Stone of the Month:

March: Dragon Blood Jasper 

April: Cherry Quartz    

 

The stone of the month program is available exclusively to bead stores. Find out more about the stone of the month program. email: tia@dakotastones.com
