Welcome! My name is Peter Baram, and I'm what they call a certified "Rockhound." I've been traveling around the world for over 50 years, and collecting rocks is my absolute passion: each rock tells a unique story from around the globe! I particularly love finding stones in their rough, natural state and transforming them into beautifully-cut, shiny gems. About a year ago, my wife and I were unfortunately laid off from the company that we had worked for for the last 7 years. During this downtime, my wife complained that my personal collection had gotten wildly out of control and had taken over possession of our bedroom, so we decided to start making it available to other people -- and that is how we've become STELLA STONES AND JEWELRY. Our specialties are Amber, Opals, and Turquoise but we will continue to travel around the world collecting all kinds of exotic stones.
