Mined in America.
Demanded by Jewelers.

As American as a Gibson® guitar or a Stetson® hat, the American Mined™ Collection is a new line of faceted stones, cabochons and beads developed for jewelers and metalsmiths who believe the source matters.

We combed the United States in search of the finest American gemstones, touring mines, meeting with enterprising miners and examining hundreds of rough stones along the way. The result is a collection of exceptional gems that allows you to trace a stone from the mine to your bench.

This collection will grow as we develop new relationships with mines across America. Check back often for new additions, and introduce the American Mined™ Collection to your most discerning clients.

SAVANNAH SUNSTONE™

OREGON

Our Savannah Sunstone™ is responsibly mined along the Oregon-California border against a moonscape-like backdrop of rolling flatlands and sunbaked desert vistas.

It is operated by a local couple who live on the claim for much of the year, and the land the mine sits on will be remediated when the mining operations are complete. You can read more about the Sunstone Butte Mine on the Rio Grande blog.
