The big picture illustrates the long lasting beauty of Hanoi Old Quarter, where the red tile roofs are seen under the old tree on the streets. Cyclos are very common transportation if you don’t feel like going on your own. It’s humorously compared to Western horse carriage, but comparing it like that doesn’t make it lose the cultural image in foreigners’ eyes. Usually from the 1900s, houses on the street are quite small but very cozy. Colorful paints were not yet developed at that times, every house is painted in white lime-wash, also known as calcimine. A very small point in this gemstone painting but brings a very strong feeling to those who see it is the Ao dai. The traditional dress of Vietnam has been coexisting with the Old quarter for a very, very long time. Since they’re cultural icons, they are considered to be international art. From photos, to oil paintings, lacquer paintings and now it is even seen on gemstone painting. The paintings are much more beautiful than the pictures, even more than the oil version. Both have received many positive testimonials about how beautiful they are.

Hello! My name is Jung and I'm an experienced gemstone painter based out of Hanoi, Vietnam. An interesting art form of Vietnam and other countries in the region is gemstone painting, whereby powdered or very small gemstones are used to create beautiful and colorful pictures. The art form is said to have originated in Rajasthan, India, but spread throughout Asia. Gemstone art is colorful, durable and uses crushed gemstone fragments that would otherwise be disregarded or deemed only suitable for industrial use because they are too small for use in jewelry. To make these paintings, the stones are sorted by color, washed, dried, crushed and then cleaned before being sprinkled over a clear glass or mica sheet and affixed with glue. The beauty of such pictures is that they sparkle with color that does not fade or deteriorate, and the artwork helps to support local miners, who would otherwise have to sell tiny or low-quality stones at very low prices. Synthetic colors often do not come close to the colors of nature, so these gemstone paintings are a sight to behold. These paintings can be bought at the Yen The morning gemstone market as well as other places nearby, and now from me through Verlocal!
