the top of the mountain ☾

chain: 18" oxidized sterling silver

a little triangle of all-natural sugilite sits in my raw copper and silver open-back setting. pierced to let the light through an otherwise deeply colored stone, this little gem brightens in the sunshine and sits directly against the skin ~~ another healing stone ~~

From the lapidary:
"Here is a buff bar of highly translucent sugilite "gel", cut from some very old stock rough. This triangle has great color and took a nice polish.  A lucky find at Tucson this year.  The rough material is now close to impossible to find at any price.  But I found some small pieces at an ungodly high price.  It doesn't get much better than this. Collector quality for sure. Bright sugilite gel, with a hint of gem richterite."
