Welcome to the Official Home of Skystone 


Skystone's Journey

Africa is no stranger to famous gems, from diamonds such as the Cullinan to the Star of Sierra Leone. The continent is home to most gemstones from Amethyst to Zircon; with none being more mysterious than Sierra Leone's Skystone.


The Discovery

Skystone was discovered by noted diamond & gem prospector, David Ledbetter, during an excursion into the jungles of Sierra Leone in 1991.


Legacy of Skystone

The Skystone Collection is owned by Alan Gregory Ledbetter, son of David Ledbetter. The father and son team worked closely together during David's numerous expeditions and ventures. Alan has had possession of the material since its arrival to the US in 1991. Since he was 18 years old, Alan has worked with the mysterious material; preparing test samples, cutting and polishing, and researching the mystifying Skystone.
