A true rich lavender color, this gorgeous cabochon is a prime example of the beautiful and highly sought after Lavender Jade (more accurately, Jadeite, although it is sold as simply "Jade") coming out of Turkey in very limited quantities. These close-up photos show the tiny spotting of reddish purple that, from a distance, serve to deepen the sense of lavender and give great character to the stone. This material has become one of my favorites and always draws great attention when I create jewelry from it. This sizable cabochon will make a gorgeous piece of jewelry.
Lavender Jade/Jadeite Designer Cut Cabochon 43.5 x 24.5 x 5.8mm 51.3 cts.
I cut this cab by hand and it's been polished to a high sheen both front and back with slightly beveled bottom edges for easy setting.
