This brilliant green stone is created using the volcanic ash and rock dust resulting from the eruption of Mount St. Helen's on May 18, 1980. The force of this eruption blew thirteen hundred feet of earth from the top of the mountain, sending a cloud of ash more than 60,000 feet into the air, leaving a mile wide crater behind.
From this volcanic ash and rock is created Mount St Helen's Jewelry, a fused silica similar to obsidian, with the natural color of the evergreen forests that once surrounded the mountain. These memories and colors are preserved for eternity in hand cut stones set in exquisite jewelry.
This jewelry design was inspired by the architecture of the Space Needle.
