I cut this cab by hand and it has been highly polished both front and back with slightly beveled bottom edges for easy setting.
Josephine's Crown is an extremely rare and superb lapidary material that consists of a mix of Pyrite, Chalcopyrite and other sulphides in white and black quartz. It comes from deep in the earth in Josephine County, Oregon in and around gold mines. Because Widmanstaetten patterns have been found in several specimens of josephinite, which are typically produced during slow cooling of a homogeneous metal, it is now believed that Josephinite was derived from the earth’s mantle. Josephinite Widmanstaetten patterns are the first known in terrestrial rock.
