A softer interpretation of the traditional birthstone jewelry, we are so excited to offer this beautiful and ethically sourced adornment that is just as unique as you! Locally crafted and exclusively available at District Mineral.
We are excited to introduce you to our April birthstone, a rose cut Arkansas Quartz! This brilliantly clear quartz is set in rose goldfill on an 18’’ chain. Formed in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas, it is the state’s official gem, and it was formed when water trickled down into fissures during the late stages of mountain formation over 250 million years ago, according to the state’s geologist. The native populations are known to have used this material for tool making, and later, the abundant deposits of Quartz became a worldwide attraction for rockhounders and gem collectors. I’m addition to its fascinating history, quartz is of course one of the most beloved crystals for healing, due to its associations with high vibrations, cleansing properties and ability to amplify the energetics of other stones. Whether wearing this stone as a celebration of your birth month or simply because you feel drawn to its energy, it will be a true joy to wear.
About District Mineral’s Birthstone Collection
We are beyond elated to announce our first private jewelry collection – the District Mineral Birthstone Collection. This exciting new capsule is a creative reimagining of the quintessential jewelry piece: the birthstone necklace.
Focusing on ethically sourced, American mined, and vintage stones, we place an emphasis on high quality and rare stones that make each necklace one of a kind. In addition to traditional or primary birthstones, we delighted in exploring the secondary or alternative birthstones, which allowed us to breathe fresh life into this classic jewelry staple.
We sought some of the most unique and unexpected stones, from milky teal New Mexico turquoise to shimmering Australian opal to minty vintage emeralds. Our stones shy away from the norms of overly saturated and often synthetic gems in favor of delicate, nuanced, and 100% natural ones that speak to the uniqueness of crystals, and the uniqueness of you.
Each necklace is handcrafted locally and set on a delicate 18” rose goldfill chain and can be special ordered in solid gold by request. Please email email@example.com for a quote. We hope you love this collection just as much as we do, and we look forward to helping you explore the magic and fun of birthstones!
