This is a tree original from North America and Europe. It was brought to Brazil during the colonial times and it quickly spread widely across the country. Today it is well known by Brazilians as " pinheiro" ,"cedrinho" or "arvore da vida". Although this tree is commonly used in decorations, specially during the Christmas time, Tuia also has medicinal properties for humans and animals. It is used in the treatment of warts and hemorrhoids, and also in curating pulmonary diseases such as asthma.
"Positive natural vibes that transcend barriers"
The process of creating biojewels starts at the collection of the organic materials, acquired in the Brazilian Amazon rain-forest by local farmers. The goods are collected from trees and branches that have naturally fallen to the ground due to wind, rain, etc. After the collection, they preserve the natural beauty of each piece, by natural processes called desiccation and skelletization. After this first step, a second group of local Artisans handles the metallization and gold bathing processes.The whole process is certified by the IBAMA (Brazilian Institute of Environmental and Renewable Natural Resources).
