From Our Hands to Yours: A Video Tour of California Jade at The Rock Stop
Gently sourced, artisan-crafted works in jade from our green-powered workshop on the Mendocino Coast.
We've recently been making videos of our Rock Stop shop on Highway 128 in Philo, CA, giving viewers a glimpse of the wide assortment of jewelry, gems, crystals, stones, carvings and other artisan works for sale. This time we focused in on the Jade display case, containing our very own, signature California RiverBlossom Jade.
This is Jade we have hunted and gathered on our helicopter journeys, riverbed excursions, mountaintop hikes and Pacific seashore wanderings. All of it is from our own hands and beautifully crafted into unique, eye-catching pieces by local and visiting artisans. Too, there are stunning examples of polished botryoidal, vulcan and undersea jades in their original, natural shape and form, for viewing and suiseki.
We hope you enjoy this quick look at our jades! And, if your travels bring you to Mendocino Wine Country, we invite you to visit us and take a closer look. To see more of our shop tour videos, check out our Rock Stop Blog.
