Garnets are a group of silicate minerals that have been used since the Bronze Age as gemstones and abrasives.
The Latin adjective granatus, abundant in grains (of granutn, grain, seed). Is applied to pomegranate, fruit of the pomegranate (“pomegranate apple”), whose seeds are red.
The red garnet (Grenat of Mozambique, Rhodolite garnet) is undoubtedly the best variety of garnet. It can be found in many ancient tales. In Greek mythology for example, it is mentioned in particular in the legend of the abduction of Persephone by Hades. It is also mentioned in Jewish and Muslim traditions where they are always a symbol of light, but also of fidelity and truth.
Murano glass is glass made on the Venetian island of Murano, which has specialized in fancy glasswares for centuries. Murano’s glassmakers led Europe for centuries, developing or refining many technologies including crystalline glass, enamelled glass (smalto), golden glass (goldstone), multicolored glass (millefiori), milk glass (lattimo), and imitation gemstones made of glass. Today, the artisans of Murano are still employing these centuries-old techniques.
Murano’s reputation as a center for glassmaking was born when the Venetian Republic, fearing fire and destruction of the city’s mostly wooden buildings, ordered glassmakers to move their foundries to Murano in 1291. Murano glass is the largest proportion of Venetian glass.
Seedbeads or conterie are small, round beads. To produce this tiny bead, hollow tubes of colored glass are formed, then chopped and re-fired for smoothness and shade.
Water pearls are distinguished by the particularity of not having a nucleon in their center. They consist entirely of mother-of-pearl. This means that technically speaking they would be of a higher quality than other pearls that have a nucleon covered with layers of mother-of-pearl.
