Mount St Helen's

On May 18, 1980 Mount Saint Helen's erupted with the explosive force of 500 atomic bombs. Thirteen hundred feet of earth was blown from the top of the mountain, sending a cloud of ash and smoke for more then 60,000 feet into the air.

From this volcanic ash we have created Mount St Helen's Jewelry, a 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.
