I recently purchased a Helenite necklace + earing studs. Does anybody know much about Helenite as a gem stone. Any experience with Stauer jewelery?
There is so much negative info about this company, I am not sure how they are still operating. I now have trepidations about my purchase.

Hi, I am a gemologist and a graduate of the Gemological Institute of America and worked in the fine jewelry biz for over 40 years (but not presently).

"Helenite" is a synthetic, man-made glass that is created in a laboratory using ash material from Washington's Mount St. Helens. It is not a natural mined gemstone.

BTW I posted a thread on Stauer's Diamond Aura jewelry a few years ago here on C-D in the Fashion & Beauty forum. Look it up ... I think the title of the thread is "The Diamond Aura Scam." There was a lot of interest on that thread.
