Gem trees will make nice gifts for you or someone special.Gem trees will make nice gifts for you or someone special.

crystal tree sampleThese Gem trees are made from a high quality, non-tarnish 24 gauge jewelers wire. The 24 gauge wire is wire-wrapped and shaped into a Bonsai style Gem tree. Natural gemstones are then attached to the Gem tree.

I have in stock a wide variety of gemstones to choose from such as Amethyst, Sodalite, Adventurine and Quartz crystal just to name a few. The tree is then carefully mounted with a special clear epoxy onto a matching Rock mineral or crystal base.

All gemstones and bases that I use are not altered in anyway, meaning that they are not chemically dyed. The Gem trees come in four different sizes: Extra small, small,
medium and large.

Customization Is Available

You can pick out the gemstones and wire color from below and I can custom make your very own gem tree. Please specify what size gem tree and type of gem stone you would like or you can tell me what you are looking for and I can see what I have in stock.

Prices range from $9.95 to $159.95 depending on what size tree or what base is used.
