African Bloodstone preformed rough slab, 17x27x7 mm, natural (rs91691)
African Bloodstone preformed rough slab
Origin: South Africa
Characteristics: African Bloodstone (Cherry Orchard agate, Lava Agate). Gray/green and red, some translucence in the green/gray quartz. This material turns into great looking cabs with a mirror polish (see my last picture (not included in this sale)). No pits or open fractures, some sealed fractures, surface fractures may also be seen in the pictures, most should blend in when polished. Smooth surface with 325 grit sanding.
Bloodstone is an intense healing stone and a 'stone of courage'. It may help to overcome stress and anxiety and provide revitalization of love, relationships and friendships.
Approx size: 17 x 27 x 7 mm, weight: 39 ct.

Preformed slabs: My slabs have all or most of the pits and open fractures removed to produce a more acceptable slab for you to finish. The front and back have been smoothed.
Finishing purchased slabs: My recommendations are for you to start with 325 diamond grit, change to 220 if 325 is not removing grit lines, and finish with 600 grit before polishing. I have created several posts that show how I create cabs, see my website blog on Designsbyshirl.
My pictures: I use a full spectrum 45 w light bulb - photography photo CFL 5500K. It's a daylight balanced pure white light.
My first 2 pictures (front and back) show items wet, this brings out the colors you should see in a finished product. Other pictures show items dry, this should show imperfections (small cracks or pits) if there are any. Contact us if you have any questions. Translucent items will have at least one picture taken with a backlight.
An 18 mm dime or 24mm quarter and 10 mm background squares in some pictures should help you with image sizing.
