Dec 2014 Stone of the Month

DEC 2014 STONE OF THE MONTH – AMAZONITE WITH DIOPSIDE CRYSTALS

This Designer Cabochon, the Dec 2014 Stone of the Month, was cut from rare material I bought at an estate sale in Southern California, it was identified as Amazonite with Diopside crystals. Recently a very small piece was being sold at a gem show as a specimen, the dealer said this material ran out many years ago and only specimens are left if you can find them, he also said it originally came from Morocco. This is a beautiful translucent material with a sky blue color intermixed with the green Diopside. This is a beautiful choice for my first Stone of the Month, each month I will try and find another great looking stone to put on sale.
