~ Shattuckite in chrysocolla cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of blended shattuckite, chrysocolla and azurite from the Congo. This vibrant blue material is mighty hard to beat when it comes to eye catching, and I have to say the photos fall short of illustrating the vivid hue. The colors just don't translate very well digitally, but in hand, you'll see a strong electric CERULEAN blue, with a scattering of jet black patches. Those seemingly dark areas are actually a dark shiny metallic that's silvery in color; possibly hematite, if I had to hazard a guess, and they almost resemble plumes. This highly silicated material is quite durable; it's naturally hard enough to take an excellent polish, so it will wear well in any type of jewelry you wish to create. The stone has a high rounded dome of 6mm, and a graceful designer 'flame' shape, brilliantly polished both front and back.

Size: 51x22mm
Weight: approximately 66 carats
