Rainbow Calsilica Designer Cabochon


This designer-cut rainbow calsilica is unusual in every way. While most calsilica has stripes or bands running across the stone, this one is brown, green, red and blue swirls like a watercolor wash. I've border-wrapped the stone in 22 gauge sterling silver wire with a looped swirl at the top

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 1/8" wide.

Note: Rainbow calsilica is described as being a “microcrystalline calcite with the color resulting from a copper push that cross-cuts rhyolite.” Under Raman spectrography the stone appears to have calcite and plastic or parrafin-like materials present in the stone. There are two theories widely spread about rainbow calsilica: one that it is laboratory made, the other that it is mined near Chihuahua, Mexico. Either way, the stone is hot and commands a high price in the gemstone market.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
