These will go on sale for the first time at the open house - browse popular stone varieties, such as emerald, black spinel, lime quartz, multi-colored Smoky Quartz, Aquamarine and labradorite.


March 12, 2018: Stones, stones and more stones....

Box by box, pallet by pallet, the large tent in the front courtyard fills with treasures from around the world. In addition to many classics, there are also always small lots and rare individual pieces that are only available on site and not available through our web store, for example spheres of apatite, cuts of labradorite, rough stones Amazonite and numerous other delicacies.

Also in the mineral shop numerous busy hands are preparing everything for the in-house exhibition weekend: On Friday, still a small container from Hong Kong arrived, a shipment with drilled gemstone rarities is just labeled and on a jewelry package from Bali we are also still waiting - that is currently hanging in Leipzig in customs clearance.


March 10, 2018: the tents are coming!

Luckily, it only drizzled a bit on Saturday, so that the Fischer company was able to erect the tents for the in-house exhibition. So it can then start on Monday morning with putting away the tables and chain walls!

The weather prospects for the coming in-house exhibition weekend are good by the way: No rain, around ten degrees! Perfect to browse the many newly arrived treasures in the tents!

March 06, 2018: Still behind bars...

Buddhas in various designs, numerous animals in different sizes - perfect for the soon to begin outdoor season, when terraces and gardens are decorated again!

More pictures of the contents of the two containers can be found here when they are finished unpacking.


March 05, 2018: the sun rises!

New for the open house are these beautiful strands in the colors of the sunrise:

Yellow Heliodor, yellow sapphire, orange sunstone, orange sapphire, bright pink Tourmaline and pale pink sapphire.

A ray of sunshine is enough to illuminate much darkness.
Franc of Assisi (1182 - 1226)

March 01, 2018: Hmmmmm...... What is that ?!!?

The pallet from Peru, which arrived yesterday, was unpacked today and came to light, among other things, initially quite strange-looking objects....

But then a second look reveals the beauty of the object: Sparkling tea lights made of Pyrite! It does not always have to be Rose Quartz or Rock Crystal...

Also on the pallet were dreamy beautiful Tumbled Stones made of Chrysocoll and Flats with pieces of Pyrite in different sizes.


February 28, 2018: Colorful opals from Honduras

At the moment the fantastic, colorful stones are still being cut, at the in-house exhibition they will be available: Iridescent opals from Honduras!

The so-called "Veta opals", ie opals with snow-white and colorful iridescent veins are an absolute rarity and require special skills when cutting.

The opals come from the Honduras project of the association Fair Trade Minerals & Gems e.V., which visitors to our in-house exhibitions have been supporting with their donations for many years.

27. February 2018: Again a pallet!

Once again a pallet of new goods has arrived - this time from Peru. Contents: Pyrite in various forms and Tumbled Stones from the Andean country. What exactly will be revealed in the next few days, when box after box is unpacked and sorted. The delivery bill is a bit unclear - we are all curious to see if the items ordered actually came as ordered by Purchasing....

February 26, 2018: bright blue sky - bright blue labradorite

Matching the bright blue sky, intensely blue Large Palmstones, Freeform hand charms and hearts have been unpacked from the Madagascar container today. A dream in blue - there is well understandable that the stone medicine uses the mineral to see through their own imagination and illusions, by using the labradorite being and appearance become clear.

And what is standing there so very inconspicuous on the windowsill in the entrance warehouse, is also a small sensation: bowls of blue calcite!
While the "normal" orange calcite is to be had in many forms - quite topically here as stone of the month März - articles from blue calcite are to be found almost hardly; most rough stones are bluish-greyish. So the tour by our buyer Bernd Stark to the gemstone island was worth it just for the great bowls. A few impressions from the tour can be seen here on Facebook.



23. February 2018: the house fair invitations are on the way!

The invitation cards for the house fair are on the way to our retailers together with the current Chili Jewels jewelry catalog.

The container from Madagascar is here! In addition to popular standard items such as Coelestindrusen, jumbos of carnelian and Tourmaline (black) steps, this container also contains numerous boxes and boxes full of gemstone treasures that our buyer Bernd Stark personally selected a few months ago in the local cutting shops on the island. We are all very excited about what awaits us!

At the moment, the numerous boxes and wooden crates must first be unloaded - the unpacking will then start on Wednesday.


20. February 2018: boxed strands, strands, strands

An El Dorado for all jewelry designers: from the inventory of a dealer friend, who has gone into well-deserved retirement, we have bought up numerous cheap gemstone strands, which you can buy at the in-house exhibition at absolute bargain prices. Since these are numerous small lots, they are exclusively available only at the in-house exhibition and then in the showroom in Ludwigsburg - not in the webshop.


February 16, 2018: Who is breeding in the Easterwood?

What at first looks like a giant bird has taken up quarters in our warehouse and built a cozy nest, is actually a small glimpse of the shipment from India. In addition to numerous Tumbled Stones, Cobra stands and other standard items, extra-large Lingams up to 25cm long have also arrived. These can be found at the open house in the tent in the front courtyard.

The Shiva Lingams originate from central India and were originally recovered as naturally formed river pebbles from the Narmada River. Meanwhile, due to high demand, it is carefully carved out by hand from the original rock. The Shiva Lingam is a traditional phallic symbol, symbolizing male energy and is therefore, as the name suggests, often found in temples of the god Shiva. Further, the Shiva Lingam, like all other ovaries, represents the infinite and the totality of creation. It is said to provide balance and harmony in the wearer and in the house through its gentle vibrations.
