Ancient Greek Love Story Inspires Gem Carving


My visits to the Greek island of Kefalonia and the subterranean Lake Melissani inspired my recent gem carving I’ve titled “Nymph Melissanthi.” the gem is carved as a cameo in chalcedony withbright blue-green chrysocolla veins, and a beautiful flower-like dendritic inclusion, which I positioned at the nymph’s lips. the gem material is from Arizona and was chosen to reflect the lake’s colors.

The island of Kefalonia (also spelled Cephalonia) is located off the west coast of Greece. It is part of the Ionian Islands, renowned for rich fauna, soaring mountains that reach down to the sea, vineyards, olive groves, and beautiful idyllic beaches.
