While some only use rare gems for observing, there are those who employ them at a large scale for home decorating. Antolini is increasing the availability of the premium Precioustone line in North America, which is made of real gem stones, a rarer kind of natural stone that is often used for jewelry. Over one hundred varieties of precious gems are available in the Antolini Precioustone Collection. Amethyst, quartz, jasper and agate are transformed into coverings of “sheer class”. These stones, particularly the translucent varieties that can be lit-up from behind, are said to create unique colour effects and add an opulent touch to a room.
Here is more information from the official press release we were sent: ” Due to the difficulty of obtaining large supplies of natural gems, Precioustone is a more premium product. Antolini’s gems are harvested from the ground, made by the Earth’s natural processes over millions and billions of years. Precioustone is a piece of our planet’s story, evidence of the Earth’s power to design unlike any design”. We are curious on knowing your thoughts regarding this luxurious home decorating line. What is your stand on the making-of process? [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Antolini]
