Glacier Blue, in case you didnt know, is a brand name for treated colorless topaz owned by Signity Gems,
the subsidiary of Swarovski AG in Austria. Poler has been selling it for nearly four years, ever since she saw it on display at the Tucson gem show in 2003.
At the time, she was contemplating a repositioning of her store, Wheeler Jewelry in Kalispell, Montana, to a showplace for colored stones. But first she needed a product that could serve as a very affordable gateway purchase to more valuable stones and also give her revenue to build a sizable colored stone inventory.
The new topaz proved the ideal pilot purchase of colored gemstones for Polers customersmany of whom are tourists drawn to her area for its multitudinous recreational opportunities.
Its the perfect memento for a stay in our Eden, she says.
One look conjures a thousand beautiful memories.
