About The Gemstone

Prasiolite—also know as green quartz or green amethyst—is a verdant quartz named for its lush hues. This organically refined gemstone varies from mossy opaque hues to translucent green with geometric facets or arboresque inclusions.
MOHS Hardness: 7
Origins: Various
Care: Avoid dropping your quartz jewelry onto hard surfaces: quartz is only as strong as its inclusions allow. Do NOT soak intaglios in water as it can seep behind the stone. It has been sealed with epoxy as an added measure, so limited liquid is appropriate, but constant immersion and soaking can eventually lead to water damage. To clean, use a damp cloth or toothbrush and dry quickly. Do not use ultrasonic or steam cleaners.
Healing Properties: Promotes heart-opening, self-love, and connection to the self. 


The Story of Waiting

Hannah's first collection, Waiting was developed as her college thesis and is ever-evolving like the nature it’s inspired by. This collection of jewelry comprises organic shapes, such as eggs and branches, waiting for the rain to evolve them to their next phase of life. Waiting commemorates nature in its most primal stages and celebrates its stark dualities: eggs symbolize life and new beginnings, while barren branches tend to connote spectrality and finality. Yet both harbor life within them, despite preconceived notions of their true meaning. When studying composition and balance, there is no greater master of this than Mother Nature—the original composer. Elegant and minimal, yet organic and eerie: the Waiting collection honors the complex contrasts of nature’s organic artistry. Shop the full Waiting Collection
