SONORAN SUNSET RING
Natural Chrysocolla Cuprite Mineral, hand cut and polished by me. Then I set it in fine silver bezel with sterling silver leaves and dot embellishments and a sterling silver ring band.
Measurements 7/8"W x 1-1/8"H
This stone is really a rarity in Nature: After all, think how difficult it would be to not only find the bright aqua-green of Chrysocolla in the same location as red Cuprite so bright it pulsates, but also to have thick black (probably of Tenorite) there as well....And, then, to have them melded together in such spectacular patterns--Wow! The rough of this material (mined in Mexico) is extremely expensive, and only a portion of it has the colors as strong and vivid as these.
