Rainbow Calsilica Designer Cabochon

red-line.gif


This designer-cut long oval 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, and with a splash of yellow in the upper third. It would look stunning alone or with these E120 calsilica earrings. I've border-wrapped the stone in 21 gauge sterling silver wire with my signature swirl on top.

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: 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.
