Pearl: Pearls mainly consist of Aragonite, which is formed by a shell around an intruding particle. With cultured freshwater mussels the growth of the pearl is triggered by a little cut in the epithelcells on the inside of the shell. Lacking a nucleus, those freshwater pearls are often not perfectly rounded, but are said to be more resistant against pressure, acid or sunlight-induced fading in colour. It is also easier with Freshwater pearls to culture freeform or odd shaped objects by specific manipulation of the epithel cut. Those different shaped or half round pearls are generally called Mabe-or Blisterpearls.

Peridot: The bright green gemstone coming from the mineral Olivine is called Peridot. Starting in the  15th century the stone was treasured and used for jewelry for its striking light green colour. The most beautiful specimen come form the Midwest Indian reservations of the USA as well as the mountains of Afghanistan. We mostly use faceted and naturally tumbled Peridot, recently also the rare crystal  tips of the stones found in Afghanistan. In addition we work with polished Olivinematrix which includes wonderful green veins of genuine Peridot.

Peruvian Opal: Opal is an amorphous mineral (no crystal structures or other regularly grown forms) which is formed by a mineraloid gel which is slowly deposited at relatively low temperatures (<100°C) and may occur in the matrix of any kind of rock. The name is also known in Latin and Greek but probably derives from Sanskrit (upala=Gemstone). We use the commonly known Boulderopal from Australia (where Opal is the national state mineral), Mexican Fireopal, Indonesian Pink Opal and Andean-Opal as well as the most valued milky or white Opal.

Pietersite: This mineral from Namibia is a relatively new stone on the market, named after mine owner Josef Pieterse. Pietersite is a so called mineral-breccia (conglomeration) of several similar minerals (e.g. different coloured fibers of Tigeriron) which reformed and naturally recemented under high pressure of geological movements, showing a beautiful wide range of different golden or bluish fibre-structures.

Printsstone: This outback mineral is also called Zebra stone and is found only in western parts of  Australia, where the Printstone has always been valued as a talisman and sign of good fortune.  The polished cabochon shows regular dots and zebra-like stripes in redish and brown colours on mostly lighter background. The red colour is caused by Iron oxide inclusions, but the origin and genesis of the regular structure is not cleared.

Pyrite: This stone is also called Foolsgold and belongs to the sulfide family. In Greek pyr describes the word fire, because Flintstone is capable of lighting and burning small pieces of Pyrite when the two stones hit together. Pyrite is also known to accumulate in thin layers on other minerals (many fossilizations e.g. pyritized Ammonite). Pyrit in its cubic crystal form is occuring frequently and due to its good hardness it can be used in various forms for our gemstone jewelry.
