 Semi-precious stones of northeastern Minas Gerais combined with the scrap work of stoning, gave rise to the crafts on stones. Which is very common in the region where the city of Teófilo Otoni is located, considered the world's largest gemological province. In turn, the city of Teófilo Otoni is a mandatory destination of all precious and semiprecious stones produced in this vast territory. The variety and quality of the found minerals is so great that this area gets to be considered a "geological anomaly" by the scientific community.
