This stone is so lovely to work with and I wanted to make something that was simple so that the wearer and the people who look at the person wearing it can enjoy it without a lot of fuss. It’s all about the stone and I didn’t want anything to detract from that.
I created a cabochon in a fancy shape with a simple rub over setting on a short chain.
It looks fab on Julie and I couldn’t be more pleased that it went to such a good home.
If this stone has been of any interest to you then I suggest that you look in to ordering some in the near future. My recent searches on the internet have shown that the recent hauls from the mines have produced far less vivid coloured stones. I feel that the vibrant yellows and oranges that you see in my blog are a thing of the past. It’s a sad fact that nothing lasts forever! But I guess that’s what makes it so special.
