Los Barequeros
A Cultural Heritage

Not only are there emerald barequeros, but also gold  barequeros. Actually, gold barequeros or panners are the original ones. They are not miners, because they do not destroy the mountain, use any chemicals or even machinery. Rather they collect and separate gold with the knowledge and heritage gifted to us by our indigenous 'big brothers'



The emerald process goes beyond the heroic act of finding one in the mines (or perhaps, the emerald finding you). The chain of extraordinary skills, detail, and time to make a piece continues.
