DVH Unakite Heart Focal Bead 43x33x13mm (9426) - DVHdesigns

DVH Unakite Heart Focal Bead 43x33x13mm (9426)

$ 43.98

I hand cut this lovely matte finish freeform bead out of Unakite.  I think the rough material was from Virginia but I can't be sure.  Measurements are in the title in millimeters.  2.5mm drill hole.  CHAIN NOT INCLUDED.   Here's info on unakite according to references I found on the web:  First discovered in the United States in the Unakas mountains of North Carolina, unakite is an altered granite composed of pink orthoclase feldspar, green epidote, and generally clear quartz. It exists in various shades of green and pink and is usually mottled in appearance. In good quality unakite is considered a semiprecious stone, will take a good polish and is often used in jewelry and other lapidary work such as eggs, spheres and carvings. It is also referred to as epidotized granite. In some of the Blue Ridge occurrences an epidotized augen gneiss is present exhibiting foliation structures.  Unakite is not limited to the United States, and is reported from South Africa, Sierra Leone, Brazil, and China as well as the United States. Some material labeled unakite lacks the quartz and is more properly epidosite.
