Moss agate doesn’t really contain any moss (or any other ancient plant matter) in it. Rather, the stone’s chemical components—compressed under pressure, with heat, over time—give the impression that fluffy bits of organic material have been trapped within the stone. And, sometimes, little landscapes can be imagined within the randomly abstract compositions.
The cufflinks above are made of this very material. They are set in 10 karat gold-plate and are formed in the shape of “soft rectangles”—so evocative of a mid-century biomorphic aesthetic.
Please come into the shop to see them—and the rest of our handsome, newly-acquired cufflinks.
More cufflinks tomorrow.
