This gem is created from the chemical composition of rock from the Mt. St. Helens 1980 eruption. Superb color, cut, clarity and luster. These Mt.St.Helens stones were made from fused Volcanic Rock Dust gathered after the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helen. Experts have indicated that the material ejected came from 10 - 20 miles below the earth's surface. It only lacks one mineral element from being the exact composition as a true emerald but the color and brilliance are the same.
It falls into the gem species silicate, and has a hardness of five and a density of 2.4. High-pressure fusion gives Helenite its brilliant sparkle.

St. Helens is composed of: silicone 60.50%, aluminum 16.60%, iron 6.02%, calcium 5.36%, sodium 4.18%, manganese 2.59%, potassium 1.20%, titanium .90%, phosphorus .35%, magnesium .12%, strontium .06%, Beryllium .04%, copper .03%, lead .03%, zirconium .02%, chromium .02%, and zinc .02%; the remaining 0.16 percent is sulfur, chlorine, and water.
