Malachite - Azurite Designer Pendant


WWhat could be prettier than a malachite - azurite designer cabochon with its gorgeous hues of blue and green? A friend cut and polished this gemstone for me and I've wrapped it in sterling silver and added two swirls at the top to show off the stone without overwhelming it.

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

The pendant is 2" high and 1 1/4" wide.

Note: Malachiteís color is derived from copper, and it is usually found in opaque green masses. Its crystals are too fine for faceting; itís 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.
