The spiritual significance of light is inherent in our humanity. From stained glass–adorned cathedrals combining light and darkness to shape a sacred space to the lighting of diyas during Diwali, signifying the divine victory of good over evil, light’s influence reaches across all faiths and traditions.
Illumination: Born of Light, pays homage to the fragments of earth that hold the power to illuminate our deepest sense of wonder. Like the significance of light, the primal draw of these objects transcends cultures. Though created in darkness, these radiant specimens serve as transformative vessels for light itself. In capturing light, altering it through refraction and dispersion, and emitting something new and wondrous lies their power to transfix. Light awakens something extraordinary within these stones, and by bearing witness to their illumination we too are enlightened.
