Marvel has teamed up with East Continental Gems to launch a new Infinity Stone collection, a series of precious gems carved into MCU replicas.
In a fitting piece of merchandising, miracle releases lifelike Infinity Stones carved from real gemstones. Throughout the Infinity Saga, the Stones have been central to the long-running story of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, involving the Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his plan to wipe out half of all life thanks to the mystical objects. The Infinity Stones were introduced in the MCU’s early films before finally being brought together in the 19th film, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. Even if the franchise movies are from the Infinity Saga, the MCU has still found ways to reference the Stones, with the most notable scream in the Disney+ series loki.
There are a total of six Infinity Stones, each representing their own specialty: Space, Reality, Power, Mind, Time, and Soul. They exist, as described by the Collector in Guardians of the Universe, as the remains of six singularities that existed before the Big Bang. These were then compressed into stones by cosmic entities. As the universe began to expand, they were scattered throughout the cosmos. From Earth to Vormir, the Stones have traveled to every corner of the MCU and now they are entering the real world.
marvel and Eastern Continental Gems have teamed up to create a true line of Infinity Stones carved from precious gemstones. For starters, 300 “Reality Stones” (made from rubies) are now available for presale. While the sale officially begins on November 15, fans can currently give out anything from $1,500 and $20,000 for their very own Stone. Those who collect all six of them have the option to get a collectable Infinity Gauntlet. East Continental Gems is calling on fans and gem collectors to get involved “a universe where fantasy and reality live as one”. A special statement reads:
Inspired by the gems from the comic books, the Infinity Collection includes six gems from a magical world where the most extraordinary wonders and elements come together to bring unparalleled beauty. East Continental Gems, purveyors of some of nature’s most precious stones, have unearthed alien jewels deep within our planet’s core to bring Marvel’s Infinity Stones to life. Their natural features have an enchanting quality in which brightness and brilliance make their surroundings glow.
Marvel’s Real-Life Infinity Stones are a must-have for collectors
Over the years, the MCU has produced countless exciting items ranging from the quintessential Funko Pop figures to life-size replicas of items such as Captain America’s shield. Given the importance of the Infinity Stones within the MCU, it’s not surprising that Marvel would now find a unique and impressive way to bring the powerful objects to life. While incredibly expensive, it should be noted that an example of a Reality Stone is already marked “Out of Stock”, suggesting that avid collectors are already starting to collect their pieces.
By partnering with a jeweler to create genuine Infinity gems, Marvel has set a new standard in the franchise world when it comes to merchandise. This impressive venture is sure to entice longtime Marvel fans and admirers of precious gems, satisfying not only regular comic or movie fans, but art collectors as well. With even more Infinity Stone replicas on the way, miracle fans will be forever reminded of the MCU’s first major storyline.
