Dimensions

Pendant height: 1.58 Inches; Pendant width: 0.52 Inches

This pendant features a teardrop faceted amethyst and a cabochon of rare cat's eye opal. The amethyst measures 0.31 x 0.27 inches (7.9 x 6.8 mm) and weighs in at 1.16 carats, and the opal cab measures 0.56 x 0.46 inches (14.4 x 11.7 mm) and weighs in at 4.7 carats.

The top stone is a faceted amethyst. Quartz is one of the most familiar of minerals. Its most common varieties, colorless rock crystal and white opaque milky quartz are well known as common rocks found in most parts of the world. It can also form a very wide variety of gem materials. Purple amethyst is probably the most famous, and has been highly valued throughout history, and at one point was even considered a precious gem like emeralds or rubies. It was thought in antiquity to counteract drunkenness, and was thus favored for drinking glasses and also for rings worn by clergy through the middle ages. In color it ranges from pale purple or purple-pink all the way to near-black in darkness. This one is a great example, with a rich purple color.

The bottom stone is a golden cat's eye opal. Opal is best known for its various fiery and brightly-colored varieties, known as fire or precious opal, in addition to a few others like yellow honey opal and green prase opal. There is, however, one other rare variety which is rarely seen: cat's eye opal. This variety is likely a replacement of a fibrous mineral like chrysotile, and it has kept the incredible bright sheen that those minerals are known for. The result is a very rich, bright cat's eye when the stone is properly cut en cabochon. Though good examples come from Brazil and Mexico, most of the finest stones are found in Tanzania.

This stone is a particularly nice example, with a rich golden-yellow base color and a rolling, crinkly sheen. This gives it an appearance somewaht similar to tiger-eye, but with a brighter base and richer fire.
