Gemstone Carvings

Gemstone Carvings

Gemstones have been carved since pre-historic times. Sometimes they were carved to create sacred artefacts as part of a religion or in remembrance of the dead, sometimes to honour the natural world around us, with animal and bird figures. More recently, carved gemstones have been created as gifts for friends and loved ones, with gemstone hearts one of our biggest sellers.

At RockShop Ambleside, you’ll find a wide selection of modern carved gems, from gothic skulls to romantic hearts. You’ll also find a huge choice of carved gemstone animals, from dinosaurs, like the brontosaurus and tyrannosaurus, to giraffes, gorillas and elephants. We’ve even got carved gemstone sea creatures, from seahorses to mighty whales!
