Carolyn is so kind! She didn't have any stock of this necklace I purchased, she had a few other selenites set out ready for me to choose a replacement. Above and beyond. Thank you so much!

I should have been more careful reading the dimensions (more the depth) of the bowl but wow I am in love with this little thing. It doesn't hold a lot of my crystals at once but it doesn't matter because I'm using it for my favourites. It's such a stunning piece!
Tiny Gems is a family and a shop. Owners Carolyn and Alan share a relentless passion for gemstones and minerals. They have been rock hunters for over 15 years, and their collection has gotten almost out of control! So why not open a shop?
Alan was born and raised in the Yukon Territory, in the far Canadian North. His father is a real bushman, and spent most of his time outside with his children. Alan has always had a keen interest in geology, and has a background in Mining Engineering.
Carolyn met Alan while living in the West Kootenay mountains in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. She has a background in Graphic Design and Visual Arts, and has been creating jewelry for over 20 years.
Now we want to share our knowledge and love of stones with you. Our collection features stones and crystals we have found ourselves, from across the planet. Some are specimens that we have just cleaned up, some have been made into wearable art.

Frequently asked questions
Over time, any sterling silver jewelry piece exposed to air will tarnish. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. It’s the other metals, primarily copper, that cause sterling silver to tarnish.
The copper reacts to moisture and sulfur in the air, causing the tarnishing reaction. Silver tarnishes faster in areas with high humidity and air pollution. Chemicals like hairspray, perfume, deodorant, body lotion, bleach, etc., can speed up the tarnishing process.
Here are some tips on how to help: Don’t leave silver jewelry in the bathroom unprotected, and do not wear it the shower, swimming pool or hot tub. Humidity and moisture can make tarnish appear faster!
After taking off your silver jewelry, clean it with a dry soft clot
