Traditional stools of the Buganda and Lugbara kingdoms of Uganda inspire Asscher and Emerald’s designs, respectively. The cast aluminium stools, which double as side tables, are embellished with faceted jasper breccia and chrome diopside. 

 

The gemstones are sustainably sourced based on Finland’s “Everyman’s right”. With only a few restrictions, this right gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy the country’s vast resources, including prospecting and collecting samples by hobbyists. The fact that most of the gemstone discoveries in Finland have been made by hobbyists is amazing in itself. 

 

In Lapland is a quartz vein that contains red jasper as fragments in a compact fine-grained matrix. The color of the reformed rock and shape of grain vary greatly resulting into unusual interesting patterns. This brecciated jasper is highly prized among hobbyists.

The other popular gemstone set in these limited edition collectibles is chrome diopside that is common in the skarn of the now-defunct quarry in Outokumpu’s old pegmatite. 

 

With an average of 7 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, both gemstones cut and polish to an excellent degree. The occasional naturally occurring fissures and pores, which do not diminish the durability of the gemstones, are filled with 24-karat gold leaf.
