Alps, Skis and Cairngorm Kilt Pin


For a skier, with views of the Alps and a Cairngorm stone to represent his two favourite skiing locations.

The Cairngorm stone is a type of smokey quartz found in the Cairngorm Mountain Range in Scotland. A small amount of ferric oxide is what gives it it's golden colour. The stone was very popular in Victorian time and the hillsides pretty much cleared of the stone by people known as diggers, so it can be quite tricky to get hold of one these days...but I have a few more in stock ;)
