“Cape May Diamonds” are pure quartz crystals and are found in a variety of sizes and colors. The actual source of these amazing gems is in the faraway upper reaches of the Delaware River. Pieces of quartz crystal are eroded and broken off from veins and pockets by the swift running waters of streams. Then begins the some 200 mile journey that takes thousands of years to complete. The strong tidal flow against the hulk of the sunken concrete ship “Atlantus” is the cause for them to wash ashore here (Cape May Point) in such great abundance.–”
This is Damien Hirst’s lovely platinum plated, diamond encrusted, human skull that he had made at Bentley and Skinner in London. It’s called ‘For The Love of God’. The company that made it is on Bond St, which is a big deal. They make jewelry for the royal family. They have a great website with lots of pictures of old, beautiful jewelry.
