Through research for our Fashion Issue, DECO took on a determined obsession with gemstones and crystals. Thanks to online gems shopping mecca The Arkenstone, our opener pages in the magazine popped with magnificent pieces from their gallery.

The Arkenstone is one of the world’s premier fine mineral dealers selling natural crystals, gemstones, and natural art. With galleries in Dallas and Shanghai, they are focused on promoting natural works of art and encouraging an appreciation of earth’s treasures. The Arkenstone pride themelves on teaching, educating, and curating private and institutional collections.

DECO decided to curate our own virtual collections from…

‘Cool Crystals’

Pieces from The Arkenstone Fine Minerals Gallery
From Namibian Dioptase and natural Tanzanite from Tanzania to Azurite from Russia and more, we love the natural vibrant cool colours in these crystals from The Arkenstone

Monica Kitt shared with us some fascinating information about the crystals that sparkled in our New Luxury issue. See more about that here.
