Mark Schneider is excited to announce a stunning new color collection featuring Montana agates, fire opals, and diamond slices.
After his many visits to Montana, contemporary designer Mark Schneider was intrigued by the bold, natural landscape. Often finding design inspiration from nature, Mark was delighted to find the raw beauty of Montana in a careful selection of Montana agates. From the unique natural patterns within the stones to the way light ignites the vivid colors of browns, yellows, oranges, and grays, each one is a work of art.
Mark’s new designs are bold, striking, and as fiery as the sun setting across the mountains that inspired them. The collection has taken form in a variety of rings, earrings, and pendants, which will be making their debut at the JCK show in Las Vegas.
Mark has always had a passion for natural fire opals. It was not until his recent visit to the 2012 Tucson Gem Show and his discovery of natural diamond slices that inspiration struck. In the two natural stones, fire opals and diamond slices, Mark’s saw a harmony of colors and organic quality, that meld into beautiful, wearable art. 
The collection showcases Mark’s love of fire opals, of which no two are exactly alike. He chooses stones carefully to find the ones with exceptional play of color in organic, natural shapes, which he chose to combine with diamond slices, another natural stone.
