This pendant features a cabochon of gold and blue nellite (a relative of tiger eye and pietersite). The stone measures 1.21 x 0.55 inches (3.08 x 1.40 cm) and is set in sterling silver.

Nellite is an interesting gem, a lesser-known member of the broader tiger eye family. It is something like an in-between gem between tiger eye and pietersite, with more linear flowing silk like tiger eye, but still showing some of the bold coloring and patterning that is more typical of pietersite. I had not heard of this material before I bought the rough I cut this stone from, but it is a really striking gem. It takes some work to orient it right, but when cut correctly it produces a very bright gem.

This stone shows a rich blend of gold with a bit of blue, all in the form of bright silk that flows through the stone. It catches the light as it is turned, not producing a full cat's eye but with a strong sheen. Overall it is a very beautiful gem.
