Gabbro mineral is a stone found on ocean basins, composed of slowly cooling lava over millions of years. In some specific places in the world, very fine specimens are found suitable to cut impressive gemstone jewelry. This rare stone made it to our shop from Norway. The main characteristic of this Gabbro is that it has wonderful light-reflective crystals in it, just like the Labradorite, or Spectrolite. Unfortunately, the angle and the distribution of these blade-like flakes show only when the pendant moves, but when visible, it’s spectacular.
The pendant is a large size designed shape cut, polished on lapidary diamond wheels to a 50.000 grit glass-like smoothness and shine. Set with a sterling silver 21 gauge triple lined round and half-round wire wrapping and silver plated 20″ x 1.5 mm snake chain necklace.
A limited quantity of raw Gabbro is still available for custom shape and size cutting.
Our gemstone pendants
cut from mostly self-collected natural semi-precious crystals and minerals. Local Canadian Rocky mountain gems from far up the arctic circle to the south point of Vancouver Island. We also buy and trade interesting specimens with worldwide partners.
The handmade jewelry, that you find in the store, is available to purchase. Some stones are drilled and set with findings, but our preferred method is the modern and minimalist style wire wrapping, which focuses to show the entire size of the stone, yet holds it firm and secure in place.
We never die, color, or alter our stones in anyways, all pendants are 100% natural stones, polished with a nine-step lapidary process. The settings are made of sterling silver jewelry wire.
We have a large collection of jewelry quality raw minerals, ready to cut. Custom shape and size cutting available.
Sorry, we do not sell raw stone, we use it or only trade it.
Gorgeous & perfect. Safely packaged, very promptly dispatched & arrived sooner than expected. Very happy with both purchases. Many thanks once again Gabrielle & Peter!
