We cannot believe it has almost been six months since our South American adventure! In January of this year, we traveled to Vitoria, Brazil to hand select beautiful, all natural stones for our customers. We visited about 10 different factories to ensure we would purchase the best inventory to fit our standards.
In the north, we visited the factories and quarries of Barra De Sao Francisco, and after a few days, we traveled south to the factories and quarries around Cachoeira. We were so impressed with the stunning selection of stone from this beautiful country!
At the end of our trip, we decided to see more of this incredible part of the world and headed to Manaus to explore the Amazon Rainforest, visit the pristine waterfalls of Presidente Figueiredo and see the Managua Caves, Judeia Caves and Onca Caves.
The Managua Cave is a natural wonder that captivates visitors with its awe-inspiring beauty and historical significance. Nestled amidst lush greenery and towering cliffs, this cave holds a rich tapestry of geological formations and cultural artifacts that date back thousands of years. Its immense size and intricate network of chambers make it a paradise for spelunkers and adventure enthusiasts, eager to explore its depths. The cave's walls are adorned with stunning stalactites and stalagmites, forming otherworldly shapes that mesmerize all who behold them.
Brazil is filled with genuine and warm people, beautiful landscapes, vibrant wildlife and some of the most unique stones we have ever come across. We hope you enjoy our new collection--please come by the shop to see them soon as they are already selling quickly!
