One of the most important advancements in the development of hominids was the use of stone. The abundance of stone allowed using it as tools, weapons,
building commodity, and even to spark a fire. The stone age lasted over 2 million years when the discovery of the what's inside the stone take over.
Our website is partially dedicated to that era. We'd like to introduce, what our earth looks on the inside.
Nowadays, when we open the faucet, to drink a glass of water, who's pondering over, how many tones of stones, rocks got mined to obtain copper for
water pipes, iron for drains, even quartz for the glass. We don't realize how much we depend on earth minerals. Besides the fact that, how essential these minerals,
they are also very beautiful. For thousands of years, millions of people mastered and perfected the art of carving, polishing, and gemstone jewelry making.
Talented artists emerged all over the world to upraise our culture and intelligence.
Stone is relatively easy to obtain and carve, and it opens up a wide range of possibilities as it can be rough-hewn or delicately polished.
It comes in many different varieties, providing artists with a wealth of choices in terms of color, quality, and hardness. Whether working in igneous, mineral,
sedimentary, metamorphic or semi-precious stones, the end result varies. The softer the stone, the easier it is to work with. While soapstone is the softest one
and is commonly used for stone carving, the hardest and most durable is igneous rock, formed by the cooling of molten rock, and includes granite,
Diorite and basalt. Stones such as the alabaster, limestone, sandstone or marble occupy the middle part of the spectrum.

Gabriella...
...is a stone carver, educated from European traditions. hands-on trained by an Italian sculpture,
Z. Titoneli since 1981. She believes in the ancient old school way to carve her stone, using mallet and
chisels to shape her sculptures. Contemporary art, and abstract are her favorite style, but because
of the limited space and a lack of a permanent gallery, soapstone, and alabaster figurine carvings are the
best online sellers. Native art and cultural symbols are the major inspirations in her works, especially
in smaller crafty carvings, like stone drink coaster, animal figurine and decorative wall hanger. Meet Sagastone in person every
August last week art exhibition at 728 Kingsway Vancouver, and at the Langley art festival. Event dates are posted
on her  page.

Peter...
... is a born nature lover, rock collector. most of the gemstones on this pages are self-prospected natural minerals
from the Rocky Mountains. Gemstone cutting and polishing, lapidary works, started out as a hobby, but being fascinated by
the beauty of them, with Gabriella's help, to the silver setting, it has grown as a jewelry specifically pendant making small business.
A worldwide connection made it possible to acquire, rare and location-related mineral specimen, by buying trading the raw stones.
