gems, stones, and crystals seem to be in the spotlight these days and i am loving all the attention they are getting. created by nature. their texture and colors are a design enthusiasts dream. 

thanks to nelya povolotsky on pinterest i was introduced to the webshop, cisthene, owned and operated by jen altman.  the book in the first photo titled,  Gem and Stone: Jewels of Earth, Sea, and Sky  is by jen altman and published by chronicle books. it features 50 of the world's most beautiful gems, rocks, metals, and minerals. 

and then look at all the silk scarf loveliness from cisthene. amethyst, crystal quartz and malachite. buy them right here.
