Gemstone

April 14, 2017

Sifting through mounds of jewels and shells alike, piled high, the search amongst silver and labradorite continued until sunset was due.

Countless replicas and faceted glass replaced genuine stones, falling between my fingers like a cascading waterfall. Every so often, a sediment found in nature revealed itself–Persian turquoise cast into hammered sterling silver, an antique finish over top. I found the beauty I had been searching for.

And so should I you.
