An antique diamond pan from Borneo


These exceptional “pans” were uncovered in the Kalimantan river (“Diamond River” in Bahasa) in Borneo.

At the heart of Dayak’s territory, were found many diamonds known for their exceptional colour. The shamans of this region used to say “Each diamond is a princess that must never be offended”, and for a long time it were women who were though to have  the power to discover them and extract them. For this, they used the pan - a conical instrument that allowed to separate alluvium from diamonds thanks to its form.

They have been cut from a unique piece of wood and carry the scars of a laborious work. It is with care and attention that they were regularly repaired by their owners with what they had.

Quite simply beautiful, historic pieces that we have made stands for so they can be admired as the works of art they have become.

Diameter 67cm
