Sasquan was wonderful and I have a number of commissions with very special stones. (There will be photos.) And I had a chance to photograph earlier work that folks brought with them. These will be going up soon.
Photograph is of a moldavite and Ethiopian opal astronomical in silver that I brought with me. Size is approximately 2.5". Moldavite is a somewhat luminous dark green. Now from the collection of Pierce and David Ludke
Moldavites were formed about 14,700,000 years ago during the impact of a giant meteorite in present-day Nördlinger Ries. Splatters of material that was melted by the impact cooled while they were actually airborne and most fell in Bohemia. It's very limited in locality, 99% of it is in Bohemia. And obviously it was only formed once. It's the kind of material I love to work with.
