An Artisan Piece of jewelry featuring a Tiffany Stone Teardrop Shape Cabochon with lovely variations in hues of Purple. This stone was cut and shaped by myself(Terrie Marcoe).
The stone has a nicely shaped dome and is highly polished. It’s a high quality example of the stone, which is mined in one location only, at Spor Mountain in western Utah. It’s a beautiful stone, said to help an individual to unite with their soul to value one’s soul’s path for their lifetime.
The copper wire frame was designed with simplicity, to feature and compliment the stone. Though it takes artisan skills to do this sort of detailed work, I aim to have my settings accentuate rather than overpower the natural beauty of the stone.
Tiffany Stone is made up of a mixture of stones, consisting of purple fluorite, clear quartz, opal, Bertrandite, ice cream opal, purple opal, and opalized fluorite. It is sometimes referred to as Purple Opal, Purple Bertrandite, Purple Passion, Opal Fluorite, Beryllium, and Bertrandite.
Suspended on a 20 inch Copper chain with hammered hook closure. The pendant measures 2 1/8 inches in height with the bail, and 7/8 inch wide. The actual cabochon is 1 3/4 inches in length and 3/4 inch wide.
