DVH Astrophyllite Natural Surface Bead Druzy Fireworks Stone 32x32x15mm (2402)
I hand cut this one of a kind focal bead. Measurements in the title. A freeform shape with a natural surface on one face and polished finish on the rest, with sparkling golden needles. Astrophyllite gets its name, from the Greek words astron meaning "star" and phyllon meaning "leaf." SOme people also refer to this as "fireworks stone" because of the appearance of the glistening needles. Among the minerals it is associated with that may be included in the matrix are feldspar, mica, titanite, zircon, nepheline, and aegirine. A beautiful and unusual stone. The material I cut this from is genuine astrophyllite in matrix from Russia. I have both cabochons and focal beads in this material in my store.
