Stone History


tumbled earth, kimberley, bc, Canada, Kootenay River stone jewelry, stone color pallet, black stones, brown stones, gray stones, green stones
This is the color pallet we use in our jewelry.
Each authentic stone used in Tumbled Earth has been hand collected from the majestic shores of the Kootenay River in British Columbia.  The stones were formed by glaciers approximately 22,000 years ago and naturally tumbled by the powerful water.
We do not use a man-made tumbler.
Next we use a hand drill and with precision and a special technique, drill the tiny holes in the stones.  The river stones are then slightly polished with petroleum jelly to give it that bright wet appearance. The stones absorb the polish and are not left greasy or wet. 
The stones are as old as time; created into modern designs.
