Serenite is ethically extracted from a remote mine located amongst breathtaking scenery in the centre of an ancient dried out lake in Oregon, USA. Serenite is a gemstone that literally glows with an incredible brilliance. In fact, back in the late 1840s, gemologists at Tiffany's were said to have named the gemstone as an "Immature Diamond". Without today's modern technology and advanced research tools, they could tell the hardness was different to a Diamond, but they were unable to test its chemical composition.
They therefore came to the conclusion that this incredibly bright and sparkling gemstone must be a Diamond that hadn’t finished growing. The Serenite mine is some 25 miles north of the nearest town of Plush and is located close to the original Tiffany’s mine. In fact, many many years ago Tiffany did market a small selection of incredibly clear Sunstone pieces from this area as "The Plush Diamond". Fast forward to today though and we now own the mine that this is sourced from, so new finds of this breathtaking gem are exclusive to the Gemporia name.
