It's all very meticulous work and while I love looking at all the new and now so new stones the concentration is fierce. Stones include druze crystals in a variety of minerals including a stunning large gem silica, pink opal from Peru, prenite (golden and new to me), and some stunning small Ethiopian opals.
(As I write,I am pretending not to see my cat, George, steal a pen, roll it across the floor and bury it under the rug. It seems a shame to deprive him of the pleasure.)
This is a beautiful covalite (They are found in conjunction with silver ore.) that I set for an antique Russian chain. The stone is a deep reflective, somewhat chatoyant dark blue that doesn't photograph well so you'll have to use some imagination. It's in a shade of gold made to harmonize with the deep gold of the chain. Pendant is about 1.75 inches. From the collection of Wendy Czarnecki.
