This freeform ring features a gold in BLACK quartz stone set in a 14 carat gold band with a column of full cut diamonds on the side. Pure veins of gold were forced into quartz by hydro-thermal pressure while they were both in a molten state. These rare formations are found in their natural state by hard rock miners. Pieces of exceptional quality are hand cut into individual stones and polished. Each gemstone of gold dispersed crystal is one of a kind. Heavy and extremely durable. Gold in black quartz is mined north of the Arctic Circle, the northernmost mine in the world!
