Artemis Colour Tints

The Artemis Ash-GemTM and MamaMilk-GemTM can be tinted using natural colour pigments for a palette of colours. Hair/Fur can have solid tinted backgrounds as we do not recommend the hair itself is tinted.

Each bonded gem forms a tiny pattern unique to your material; a mosaic which can never be repeated. The very nature of your material you provide is that even the colour pigment is taken up differently for each sample and therefore each Gem has a different tone of the base colour.

We have developed 12 standard colour tints to match the natural gemstones that mirror the birthstones for each month according to the ancient, modern, astrological and zodiac birthstone charts.

Our 12 Standard Colour Tints

Our product uses all natural components, which includes the samples provided, and as such the natural beauty of the individual parts makes each piece totally unique

Special Notes

Our tinting process uses mineral pigments which are taken up, similar to the way a dye is taken up, into the substrate used. In this case, the substrate is usually cremation ashes, breast milk, soil or sand which, in our experience, are rarely uniform across, or even within samples. We have made many tests with many different samples and have chosen our colour tints for their apparent uniformity across samples. However, it should be pointed out that the colour tints are literally "tints" as, whilst we can uniformly apply them to the substrate and adjust them by eye to our standard, we cannot change the actual colour of the substrate itself which can vary quite markedly from very dark to very light. The contrast between the sample and the tint is the factor which determines the final outcome of the visible tint - in other words, the tint is applied evenly across the sample used, but its visible intensity is governed by the texture and contrast of the substrate which is completely out of our control.

Special note for earrings and cufflinks As we are using both natural gemstones and non uniform samples to make our product, an exact matched pair of earrings or cufflinks are not possible even when we don't tint. Having said that, we do generally achieve a good colour match
