This cute Arizona Chrysocolla pendant, cut from a large boulder, what we bought direct from the quarry. A very interesting green copper mineral, with some blue in it, what is actually blended with Chalcedony, and in this form became a translucent crystal, what shows beautiful when light held behind. The shape of the pendant designed to display a bit of the host rock, red-brown Cuprite, what really characterize the nature of Chrysocolla.
High polished to a bright shine and glass like smoothness on lapidary diamond wheels up to 50.000 grit. No chemicals or harmful materials used during the process only water for cooling. Drilled with 1 mm hole on top, and set with sterling silver 21 gauge round jewelry wire created twist cap and joined hanger. The wire runs through the drilled hole, the stone never gets loose or lost.

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 specimen with worldwide partners. The handmade jewelry, what you find in the store, available to purchase. Some stones are drilled and set with findings, but our preferred method is the modern and minimalist style wire wrapping, what focuses to show the entire size of the stone, yet holds it firm and secure in place.
