Product Story

Garnet
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.
