Azurite Malachite Designer Pendant

red-line.gif


This designer cut cab comes from Peru. It's predominately blue with lovely green bands and a bit of clear quartz at the bottom. Azurite and malachite are relatively soft materials; nevertheless, the rounded dome has a nice polish. One doesn't often find stones of this vivid blue color and this one was pricey, but I think well worth the cost. I've border-wrapped it in 21 ga. sterling wire with my signature topper.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The pendant measures 2 1/2" from top of bail and is 1 1/4" wide.

Note: Malachite's color is derived from copper, and it is usually found in opaque green masses. Its crystals are too fine for faceting; it's generally polished and cut in cabochon form to show off the interesting banding. Malachite is found worldwide, however, Zaire is the major producer. Malachite and Azurite are both simple Copper carbonates. Azurite occurs as a secondary mineral in the oxidized zones of copper deposits, whereas Malachite occurs as an alteration product in the oxidized zones of copper deposits.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
