Seth Maranuk

I became fascinated with the crystalline realm at a very young age. My childhood fascination was the "vein" of crystals in the forest near my home in Pennsylvania's Pocono mountains. I knew I wanted to spend my life working with these amazing models of perfection created by nature. When I was 18 I started my career as a jewelry designer and craftsman, and my focus has consistently been on going where no one else has gone, pushing the limits and allowing my creativity to take the wheel. When I bought a bag of tumbled stone chips and found one to be shaped just like a guitar pick, the wheels in my head started turning, I knew I was on to something. But the polished rounded edge slid of the guitar strings in an awkward way, there was no precision control. So I took it to the grinding wheel and after experimenting with various different materials and designs, I eventually honed in on my hallmark design, a carefully shaped pick with just the right contour that allows for precision picking. collection

        Comments about AGATE GUITAR PICKS:

        We purchased these picks as a gift for a friend who plays the guitar. He loved them and used them a few nights later when his band had a gig. He said he loved the quality of the sound and that there was a definite difference between these and plastic guitar picks.

              Not exactly as pictured, but very pretty. The center of the pick which is thickest was polished, and had a gorgeous swirl pattern. The outer 2-4mm or so
              Is tapered down to make it thinner. This part is dull, and hard to see the beauty of the rock. Gift went over very well! Pretty piece.

                          The pick didn't look like the picture. They're was no marbling. It wasn't pretty. It just looked like a murky green triangular rock. Delivery was also delayed.

                            It is a gift so I don't know how the pick sounds on the guitar but it looks pretty good, just not quite like the picture.

                              It looks a bit different from the photo. Where its sanded down, its a bit lighter in color but its still pretty

                                  Comments about AGATE GUITAR PICKS:

                                  Bought it for the 25yr+ player who has everything. He likes thick picks but says this is just too much. His style ranges from Flamenco to Jazz Fusion so he likes intricate sounds, not a strummer. He says he's not able to really get Into the notes and make them distinct.
                                  It may be just this pick but the color is murky and lacks the delicate patterns shown here so it's not even a good display piece. Its a shame, great concept but lacking in execution.
