This unusual cabochon is Atlantasite from Tasmania, Australia, which has veins (appearing as spots) of purple Stichtite in a base of olive or kiwi green Serpentine, I always loved the color combination, so when I saw some rough I had to give it a try. I've cut this unusual stone with a nice dome for character. This material takes a beautiful polish and the color is unique and gorgeous. Due to the softness, I would never recommend this for a ring, but it could make a standout pendant or necklace. Note that there is a healed fracture visible in this stone, but it does not go all the way through or compromise the integrity of the cabochon (and I've priced this one with that in mind). I've only started working with this material, but the color and polish it takes make this one a joy to cut.
Atlantasite Designer Cut Cabochon
46.7 x 21.6 x 7.7mm
I cut this cab by hand and it's been polished to a high sheen both front and back with slightly beveled bottom edges for easy setting.
