Mt. St. Helens Emerald Obsidianite© was born from disaster. The eruption of Mount Saint Helens on May 18, 1980 caused a mud flow that trapped and destroyed the expensive equipment of a local logging company. Using acetylene torches to salvage this equipment, workers quickly noticed that the grey ash of the volcano was melting and turning green. Inspiration ensured it was only a matter of time before the first Emerald Obsidianite stones were created. This disaster and chance discovery has left the world with this remarkable legacy of beauty. – Information thanks to Emerald Fox, www.emeraldfox.com
