Gem: Sunstone “Planetary Carving” Weight: 7.68 cts. Size: 22.66 x 9.38 mm. Color: Copper/Red and Champagne Clarity: VS Cut: Hand Carved “Planetary” Cabochon Locality: Oregon Treatment: None
Here is an intriguing and fun carving! Sunstone is such a great material for these carvings! This is a nice, clear freeform cabochon that has had planets and a moon carved into the backside. The detail of the carving is quite nice and the scene has a fun space feel to it. The Sunstone itself is primarily that classic copper/red color with a slight amount of champagne. There is just a wisp of copper shiller inclusions that create a galactic glimmer. It should be set into a pendant and will be intriguing. This piece was carved and cabbed by Brett Kosnar of Kosnar Gem Co., during May 2017. Enjoy!
