About GemLand ®
GemLand was formed by Richard Allen in 1995 as a way of connecting people with ROCKS — all kinds of rocks. Our gemstone business (since 1985) has been the core of GemLand.
We offer you the some of the best of true American gemstones, including Arizona Peridot, Four Peaks Amethyst, Turquoise, Arizona Garnets, and also diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and more!
We offer you custom jewelry designs in gold and platinum with which to frame your gem.
And we offer you entertaining evening viewing of the stars and planets of Arizona’s glittering night skies — with a high-powered telescope, star charts, and legends!
ABOUT OUR LOGO
The four vivid gemstones that make up our logo are Turquoise (blue), Peridot (green), Amethyst (purple), and Garnet (red). Arizona is America’s leading gem producing state, and these stones are the reason.
Turquoise is produced now as a by-product of copper mining. Amethyst comes from an underground mine high on Four Peaks, visible from the Phoenix area. Peridot comes from the San Carlos Apache Reservation, where one of the largest deposits in the world is located. And Garnets comes from Monument Valley, one of the most iconic natural settings on Earth.
GemLand has many other precious stones as well, but these come from home!
