Something I have been pondering for a while. It took a lot of cutting to find the look I wanted for this first shot. This is a pair of inlays for my Ghost in the Shell ear weights, in the form of a doublet. Rutilated Quartz over AAA Lapis gives a gorgeous look with the gold and blue contrast. I hope to have them set this week or next and they’ll be available at that time. I look forward to doing more composite stones like this, in both Ghost and other styles. Particularly looking forward to the challenge of huge doublets for my iona style. #earweights#bodyjewelry#lapidary#doublet#rutilatedquartz#lapislazuli
Did you know super high end moonstones could be like $1000 per carat?!? I thought you'd like to see this 10 carat piece that I was lucky enough to see In person while gem shopping in India. I've never seen one so amazing. It's like a sun setting over the ocean, yeah? I asked what the nicest gems were that were mined in India and he showed me this <3 even though moonstone is not generally considered a precious stone, it's definitely always going to be one of my top five favorites, and my taste for higher quality moonstones is developing nicely... 😜🙊👅💦 also my mouth was literally watering when I was going through my collection. I can wait to start showing you what I've gathered in from the mineral world 🤘🏽🤘🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽😍😍😍👅💦
Blue Tiger Eye.
I’ve heard it called the poor man’s Pietersite but that was probably said by someone who actually had lots of Pietersite rough 😂. Oh and excuse the towel fluff.
Bummed about the crack in this Australian opal. It had a fractured before I started working on it, and I did the best I could. Cut an opal for my fist time tonight tho, and id say she came out pretty good.
Gonna rockhound it up tomorrow in camp Verde area and am hoping to find some selenite or some salt crystals. Been good being back home.
