Beija-flor Gems

Maui Gems or Beija-flor Gems has been in the business of supplying customers with the finest and best value in colored gemstones from all over the world for more than 30 years. Our start was in Brazil, where we source:
Alexandrite, Emerald, Aquamarine, Tourmaline
and where we happened to be when the beautiful and extremely rare
Paraiba Tourmaline

made it's first appearance on the market. 

We were completely blown away by this stone and became heavily involved in bringing this stone to the public

Beija-flor means "hummingbird" in the Portuguese language of Brazil and is also the name of the premier Samba Club in Rio with which we had ties. But Brazil is by no means the only locale that we search in our endevor to always have something special.

Our 30 years spent in Colorado helped put us in contact with the incredible gem...
Rhodochrosite from the Sweet Home Mine in Alma, Colorado which has closed to mining.
After buying and selling many fine gems of this material over the years, we ended up buying ALL of the cutting rough and will be producing faceted stones by the World’s best cutters as well as cabochons, polished rhombohedrons, and even a broad range of rhodo specimens.

We will have available for purchase on this site facet and cabachon stones, and jewelry designed by Patricia Van Wagoner. 
From time to time we will be adding new designs and materials so please, bookmark this site and check back on our progress. We're sure that you will find something to fall in love with.

Of course, we can’t feature everything on this site, so if there is something you’d like that you don’t see, email us or call 808-573-4845, but be aware of the time difference. Hawaii is 2 hours behind California in winter and 3 hours in summer.
