Rockstoc’s exploration of the colored stone industry extends beyond the world of buying and selling in the gem trade with an in-depth, ethnographic exploration of the connections between miners, cutters, manufacturers, and dealers. Like the mines buried deep beneath the earth’s surface, the art of adornment creates a complex network of interwoven connections between players in the distribution channel of a gem from mine to market.
