Azurite Malachite Designer Cab Pendant

red-line.gif


This stunning designer cut reminds me of Picasso Jasper with its "brushstroke" pattern of blue-black over a wash of green, blue and rusty gold. It's the most unusual Azurite malachite I have seen. To keep the focus on the stone, I've given it a simple border wrap and added a swirl and claws.

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

The pendant measures 2 3/4" from top of bail and is 7/8" 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.
