Fluorspar Cabochon with Galena The piece is approx. 0.875"x 2" x 1/4"
This cab is a wonderful specimen of fluorspar with galena in the fluorspar matrix, self collected in Marion, KY, USA. Fluorspar is a mix of sandstone with fluorite crystals, at times intermixed with galena. The cab is cut in a non calibrated teardrop shape to show off the best parts of the stone.
A unique designer cab great for custom cast and fabricated jewelry as well as wire wrapped and beaded jewelry. Can also be used as a specimen on display! This cab is not child-safe due to the natural lead content of the galena which is a lead ore.
We also have a large collection of fluorspar rough with bright bands of purple fluorite in sand stone/fluorspar matrix with some pieces displaying the natural cubic crystals of fluorite and some with galena.
All of our cabs are hand cut and designed by members of our shop in the United States. Our cabochons can be seen in well known jewelry artist's pieces as well as local privately owned jewelers' custom request pieces.
