Nina Nguyen Takes to Caves to Design Accesories

Even though Nina Nguyen designs jewelry that look like futuristic fashion pieces, these crystal slices are buds from columns of amethyst stalactite that actually took millions of years to form inside of caves.

Stalactites are natural cave formations that begin with a single drop of mineral-rich water. When the drop falls, it leaves behind a tiny mineral ring and each subsequent drop creates another ring until all of them combine to create a stunning column of mineral jewelry that Nina Nguyen has used to create awesome designs.

This natural stone is often associated with hidden inner growth, secret expansion of the higher self, and now of course with stalactite jewelry!
