DESIGNER CABOCHONS BY BRUCE

Approx Size - 15 by 29 by 8 MM weight : 26 cts -- 25 mm = 1 inch

Extremely rare material. I was lucky to find several cut slabs in a remote Australian crystal shop. This material is found as a silicified cap rock that's why it is extremely rare, most of it has already been found because it is a above ground rock. The chalcedony is a beautiful emerald green with inclusions. The matrix also takes on the chrome chalcedony color. This only occurs in Western Australia.

The geological setting of the area is that of an ultramafic intrusion into granite-greenstone of Archaean age. The intrusion consists of serpentinite that has also produced chrysoprase, chalcedony & common opal. These rock types along with the chrome chalcedony occur in the weathered , silicified cap rock. It's believed that original weathered serpentinite has been replaced through processes of silica deposition and the chrome chalcedony represents a whole-rock replacement or psuedomorph.

Chromium which is responsible for the green colouration of the chalcedony has originated from the existence of chromite within the serpentinite.

******************************************************************

All our cabochons are handmade and free form. They are polished front and back with the best possible polish. The backs are sanded and polished and most times it looks as good as the front, but not always. All our jewelry is handmade at our shop.

Not all material will polish to a high or brilliant shine mainly because of its makeup. I will bring out the best possible finish. The pictures don't show the bright finish on the cabs but many have a mirror finish.

My photos should help prevent any surprises upon receipt. Colors are real close to "true colors" and slight defects should show up in the photos. I use daylight fluorescent blubs and a Panasonic camera for picture taking. If you have any questions, please ask. If you want more pictures, please ask.

If your not happy with any item because it has a problem, contact me for 100% money back return. On other types of returns, buyers pay for secured return shipping, please see my policies section for more information.
