DVH Tanzanian Sunstone 73 ct. Teardrop Cabochon 35x35x9 (8561)

DVH Tanzanian Sunstone 73 ct. Teardrop Cabochon 35x35x9 (8561)

$ 185.00

<p>This is a relatively new find of a spectacular gemmy sunstone material from Tanzania that is as good or better than the more commonly found sunstone from India and Oregon (where I live). I hand cut this teardrop shaped cabochon. It has a high polished finish all the way around. LOTS of confetti, iridescence, shiller, and more! A nice mix of dusty rose orange ad peach color.</p>
<p>The adularescent AND aventurescent qualities of this stone are just stunning! The images give you just a hint of how these well oriented stones go from coppery orange base color to a nearly blinding coppery whitish brilliance!<p>
<p>  If you want to see ALL of my inventory of custom cut focal beads, cabochons, chains, and jewelry you will find all of it on my website.  I have bargain auctions in my eBay store at least once a month.  I have an Etsy store as well as the website, but Etsy will only showcase the most recent 4 months work, while the entire stock will always be on the website.  Sign up for my mailing list from the website, where you can also see my show and lecture schedule. Feel free to like my DVHdesigns page on Facebook where you can see my complete inventory as well!</p>
<p>Here is what June Culp Zeitner of Lapidary Journal fame says about sunstone in her book, "Gem and Lapidary Materials,".... "Sunstone is an aventurescent labradorite, microcline, or oligoclase feldspar, distinguished by minute hematite or goethite inclusions which reflect the light" She goes on to say that some microcline sunstones like this one show both aventurescence and adularescence.</p>
<p>Some of the mystic lore that has been said about sunstone is that it is a stone of leadership, dispels fear and stress, increases vitality, encourages independence and originality, warms the spirit and brings good fortune!</p>
