Although Czech pyropes are tiny crystals, they are characterized by their high quality.
In the Czech Republic, the production of jewelry from these pyropes has a long tradition.

Important milestones in the history of the Czech garnet:
The huge expansion of the Czech garnet occurred in the second half of the 16th century under Emperor Rudolf II, who became very fond of these red stones and collected several unique pieces in his collections.
In 1762, Empress Maria Theresa banned the export of raw garnets from the Czech lands, thus protecting the domestic monopoly of their mining and processing.
At the time of the Czech national revival, the Czech garnet became an attribute of Czech patriots, the mineralogical symbol of Bohemia.
Thanks to the success of the Turnov goldsmiths at the World Expo in Brussels in 1958, the Czech garnet returned to contemporary art and began writing the modern history of jewelry production in Bohemia.
Czech garnet is used in jewelry alone or in a unique combination - Czech garnet and moldavite.

According to the Czech mineralogist J. Hyršl and the historian D. Stehlíková, pyropes (Bohemian/Czech garnets) are found throughout Europe from the Pyrenees to the Caucasus in archaeological finds of jewels of Germans (Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Merovingians) and steppe peoples from the period of migration of nations, ie from the 5th to the 8th century, when they belonged to profitable export raw materials. They looked for them for their exceptional quality (hardness, incombustibility) and small size, so they could easily be inserted into jewelry only smoothed with each other, without grinding.

Moldavites – a heavenly messengers
From the geological viewpoint, moldavite is a member of the tektite group, a group of natural quartz glass materials. It is typical for its unique green colour and the surface structure.
Moldavite were first discovered in Bohemia in the Vltava Basin 250years ago (Moldau in German), which i salso the origin of its name.
The biggest sites are in the southern Bohemia and the south-west Moravia (Czech Republic).
According to a recognized theory, moldavites - tektites were formed by the impact of an asteroid, which is why magical effects are also attributed to them.
The most famous localities are Chlum and Besednice.
