Stones featured in the Bahgsu Jewels collection are millions of years old. They are shaped inside the earth when liquid cools and hardens. Minerals within the growth area give them color and create the shape.
Amazing to ponder how most crystals were created millions of years before humans were even on the evolutionary map. This truth helps me to maintain perspective and fully appreciate every exquisite second.
