Catalog Landing Page – Module Explainer

T his is a rich text module, which shows text. This is not a new feature, but continues to be the best way to show text. We'll start the catalog text off with the auction info.

This is a quote module, which is a nice way to break up blocks of text.

Featured Lot Module
This is a featured lot module, which must be linked to an active lot. This feature looks best if there is a paragraph or so of text to join the lot (the start of the catalog essay is likely ideal).

(this is an image banner, to break up the page a bit)

Here, we can have more rich text on the page, and insert some other fun things – videos, slideshows, photos, you name it.

Gradient Overlay ImageThis is a good way to break up section on a page, or introduce a single owner collection. The gradient can be removed, but I tend to like it. The image will always be full-screen horizontal, but the vertical size can be adjusted however we like. This text can move left, right and center, but it always positioned on the bottom of the image.

Single Mosaic List
Estimate upon request

Throughout the history of gemstone mining, only a small handful of mines have become synonymous with a specific kind of stone. The legendary diamond mines of the Golconda region, known for exceptionally pure white diamonds; the historic and short-lived Kashmir mines, famed for their velvety sapphires; the Mogok mines of Burma, renowned for pigeon-blood rubies; and the Muzo mines of Colombia, whose output became the gold-standard for emeralds. To that list, one can add the Argyle mine of Australia, source of some of the greatest pink and, on very rare occasions, red diamonds in the world. This one mine produces over 90% of the world’s supply of those gems, and it is set to close by 2020.
