Product Story

The warm red of the garnet illuminated Noah's Ark.
Garnets have been known to Man for thousands of
years. Noah, it is said, used a garnet lantern to help
him steer his ark through the dark night. Garnets are
also found in jewellery from early Egyptian, Greek and
Roman times. Many an early explorer and traveller
liked to carry a garnet with him, for the garnet was
popular as a talisman and protective stone, as it was
believed to light up the night and protect its bearer
from evil and disaster. Today, science has taught us
that the garnet's proverbial luminosity comes from a
reflective index.

Swarovski (Austrian) Crystal is considered by many
people to be the finest quality, full-lead crystal made
today.  It contains a minimum of 32%PbO, making the
crystal optically very pure.  The crystal is then faceted
with tremendous precision, creating beautiful prisms.  
Brilliant colors and/or coatings are added to these
crystals to create pendants, stones, and beads of
dazzling beauty and tremendous variety of shapes and
sizes.  Swarovski Crystal is unmatched in quality and
distinction .Swarovski beads are made in a factory in
Wattens, Austria. Swarovski crystal beads are created
using a formula perfected by Daniel Swarovski and his
three sons at the turn of the 20th century. All
Swarovski crystal beads are fired using a combination
of quartz sand and natural minerals, then cooled
slowly to avoid causing stress to the crystals. The high
percentage of lead in all Swarovski crystal beads (32%
compared to competitors 24%) as well as the secret
manufacturing process produces high quality
Swarovski crystal beads with a diamond like brilliance.
