Once upon a time, Earth’s landmasses were united as one supercontinent known as Pangea. Over 200-250 million years, Pangea fragmented and drifted apart to form the continents as we know it today. The powerful, gradual process of plate tectonics shuffling and colliding with one another was met with volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. Through millions of years, the violent process gave birth to beautiful gemstones.
While the world focuses on rubies, emeralds and sapphires, interest towards other gemstones such as topaz, opal and garnet has been brewing. The younger generation’s tastes seem to be shifting away from diamonds towards colored gemstones.
