Made with only high-quality, pure ingredients and enriched with invigorating minerals, vegetable-based dyes, and soothing vitamin E oil, these lustrous soaps are handcrafted in small batches without the use of molds. The artist hand-cuts and carves realistic angles and facets into the vibrant soap rocks once they're set in their gemstone-like shapes, giving each one the unique look and feel of an authentic birthstone. Handmade in Connecticut.

Mariel grew up in a very crafty family from Puebla, Mexico and learned many different techniques using various materials, including ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, painting, knitting, masks, candle-making and her favorite craft, soap making. Mariel has a passion for nature, colors and shapes. Very early on she found that minerals, precious and semi-precious stones encompass all these characteristics in a very dynamic way. She moved to the US in 2002 and went to college in CT. Post graduating she traveled around the world for pleasure and also pursuing art courses including one in Florence, Italy where she learned to use different art mediums/technics that later with some imagination she figured out the way to apply into soap crafting using high end cosmetic materials. She decided to embark on a quest for replicating these beautiful gifts of the earth in 2012 and after much research and trials, created these wonderful mineral soaps that represent her passion for nature and craftsmanship. She is now living the dream of working in her creative business from her little studio back in New London, CT.

Stunning Gemstone Soaps

My friend was thrilled when he opened this gift. At first he thought it was a beautiful huge peridot - his August birthstone. When he realized it was a soap he smelled it, and said it smelled like "Cool Water" which he loves. It came nicely presented, and was beautiful, unusual - breathtaking!

I was very pleased with this soap! I wasn't sure if it would be as pretty as the picture, but it is (I bought for the month of May). It also smells good and has a strong scent, which was a bonus. I'll be purchasing again for my neice's September birthday, and will probably buy one for myself as a decorative soap.

The December soap is gorgeous and lovely. Full of color and a beautiful gift. The October soap is a complete disappointment. It is 90% clear glycerin soap with two tiny spots of color. Nothing like the colorful opal it's meant to look like nor does it resemble the photo on the website. I was not expecting it to look exactly the same but it looks like plain, clear glycerin soap. I am not even sure I want to give it to my mom now.
