Meet Shawn

Shawn is a native of Ohio but grew up in Florida. His interest in gems started at age 11 when he was inspired by a family trip to the gem mines of the Cowee Valley in North Carolina. Shawn soon set a goal to be able to "pan for gold and prospect for gemstones". He wanted to be able to take raw materials and create a finished piece of jewelry with the "gifts from nature" and he achieved his goal by the age of 20.

Favorite Quote

"It's just a leaverite," is something he says to clients who bring in rocks for evaluation. Showing his sense of humor, it means that the rock has no value, as in -- "leave it right where you found it."


His favorite stone is opal, because he says no two ever look alike.


This gemstone is primarily mined in Australia and stones come in a full spectrum of color. The most common are the milky white and green stones while the red against black are the most rare. Opals are valued by the fire or play of color when looked at from different angles. Deposits of these stones are also found in the United States, Czech Republic, Turkey, Indonesia, Brazil, Ethiopia, and Guatemala.
