I have been an avid traveler since a very young age. I have been inspired by our rich heritage of handicrafts, varied culture, and beautiful landscapes. While exploring the markets in Pink City, Jaipur, I fell in love with precious stones and used to marvel at their potential application in areas other than jewelry. The Taj Mahal, in all its glory, and the innumerable palaces in Rajasthan were a major inspiration too, for their varied application of semi-precious and precious stones. Semi-precious and precious stones have a wide range of applications, but most of our clients prefer Petrified wood dining tabletops, back-lit agate bathroom countertops, hand inlaid decorative lamps and multi-color agate coasters etc. We are also retailing them as ready products and we undertake major projects through architects and interior designers.The stones are pretty expensive as the raw material is rare and their availability is getting rarer. This has had a direct impact on their cost which is increasing year to year with a price range of `3,000 to `25,000 per sq.ft.
