Day 18 of #MarchMeetTheMaker – INSPIRATION
Things that inspire me are my family, my Cornish surroundings, my Swedish heritage, but for specific pieces it’s almost always the stones! I LOVE stones…. In particular especially interesting ones with impurities, inclusions and imperfections. I'm not big on perfect stones, I'm much more likely to pick an opaque rustic rose cut diamond than a flawless clear one. And I prefer free forms to perfect symmetric shapes. I like to incorporate these gorgeous gems into my work in 2 ways or styles, one being in very simple and elegant designs with a Scandi vibe, the other with lots of texture and contrast, usually with patina, to reflect the ruggedness of the north Cornish coast. It’s all about the stones!
Ruby is one of the traditional cardinal gems, it is a pink to the blood-red coloured gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminium oxide). In the image below one can see an appearance of needles in fiber optic light in the black background
Trapped minerals in this natural diamond can tell Mineralogists a lot about the deep Earth. Hard to tell what these inclusions are, but definitely graphite, and possible apatite with chromite.
A recently published article in #nature shows that a never before seen form of natural calcium silicate perovskite was found in a diamond. One of the results of this study indicates that the Earth’s oceanic crust gets subducted very deep (about 400 mi.) and is recycled and returned to the Earth’s surface.

Granted, I’m a nerd and if you’re not, you won’t like this post, but other gem nerds will love it! This is a trigon on a diamond. It’s a naturally occurring growth on a diamond and this one is darn near perfect! #ilovemyjob
