Super piece of Chrysocolla gemstone. Unpolished slab cut for making into cabochons for jewelry or whatever suits you? Beautiful colors of blues and teal greens with green chatoyant flame piece of Malachite inside, with natural matrix edges of quartz. Pictures don't do this justice, much nicer in person! The other picture shows stones that have been cut out of a similar piece. Rare to find this quality piece.
In gemology, chatoyancy (/ʃəˈtɔɪ.ənsi/ shə-TOY-ən-see), or chatoyance or cat's eye effect, is an optical reflectance effect seen in certain gemstones.The effect can be likened to the sheen off a spool of silk: The luminous streak of reflected light is always perpendicular to the direction of the fibres. For a gemstone to show this effect best it must be cut en cabochon, with the fibers or fibrous structures parallel to the base of the finished stone. The best finished specimens show a single sharply defined band of light that moves across the stone when it is rotated. Chatoyant stones of lesser quality display a banded effect as is typical with cat's-eye varieties of quartz. Faceted stones do not show the effect well.
Size is 2" x 3 1/4".
