Icons from precious and semiprecious stones are handmade to order in the stone workshop of St Elisabeth Convent.
Any icon is a treasure, a unique object of great value. Icons from precious and semiprecious stones are treasures both figuratively and literally. Precious stones that come from all over the world and have different colors are hand picked for each icon, ground and grated by hand, sorted according to their size and hue.
Our experts use amethyst, amber, turquoise, malachite, agate, azurite, coral, magnesite, cinnabar, pearls, garnet, etc. to make icons. The ground stones are glued to a marble or serpentine marble base. You can read about making icons from precious and semiprecious stones in more detail on the Stone Workshop's page.
Icons from precious and semiprecious stones never fade nor lose color. An icon may be made on a marble or serpentine marble base. A serpentine marble base has a standard size of 10.5×15 cm (4.13×5.9 in). An icon case (kiot) is not available for such an icon.
