And now for something completely different, here we have some psychedelic “Roasted Sonoran Chrysocolla”. I was stabilizing some Sonoran Chrysocolla with Cuprite and accidently set the oven too high, so this is a one-off "heat treated" stone. I’ve got a bit more, but the color on this one is pretty off the charts! We’ve got primarily Green, Yellow, Blue, Black and Brown from my accident, but I’d love to have that type of accident pretty much every day, even though I prefer all natural. However, this material was not really workable without stabilizing it, and originally was a somewhat washed out blue, so I’m not complaining on this one. So, I may be cutting more, but the color may not be as crazy wild. I've cut this cabochon with a medium dome, girdled edges and a flat bottom with a slightly beveled bottom edge (note that there are two small "nicks" on the bottom edge, but they do not compromise the integrity of the stone and would be hidden by any bezel setting if used in jewelry). This cabochon has great eye-appeal and will definitely make an absolutely stunning eye-catching one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry!
Roasted Sonoran Chrysocolla Designer Cut Cabochon
40.2 x 32.3 x 5.8mm
I cut this cab by hand and it's been highly polish both front and back with slightly beveled bottom edges for easy setting and to protect the integrity of the stone.
Note that all my photos were taken using full spectrum lighting, which does fairly well in replicating natural sunlight. However, almost all cut stones will look best and brightest in direct sunlight.
