This big amazing stone was cut by Lano, my favorite Brazilian gem cutter.

It first caught my eye about 7 or 8 years ago when I was walking down the street in the Los Angeles Jewelry Center. It was in a window just sitting there by itself and the sun was hitting it full force. It pretty much grabbed me and pulled me in. Over the next month or two it beckoned to me again and again.

I couldn't believe it was still there and that I was still as drawn to it as I was the first time I saw it. It was more money than I could afford but something was telling me that I had to have it. So I bought it with the idea that I could always sell it and get my money back, but secretly I wanted to own it.

Even though it is quite large I could picture it in a ring. A simple clean modern design that would show it off. Of course it would probably be more practical in a necklace given the size of it.

Well, I never did have the ring made and it still sits, waiting. So I have decided to sell it and let someone else enjoy it. I tend to get too attached to things but I am learning to let go.

It is truly unique. I have never seen another one quite like it.

Note: The green coloring on the edges comes and goes and moves around depending on the light. Any blue you see in the photos is just a reflection. There is no blue in the stone.


FAQs

Whenever possible I will lengthen or shorten a necklace or bracelet for a small restringing or soldering charge. In the case of a ring...again if it is possible to size it larger or smaller I have a skilled jeweler who will do it. The price would depend on the individual piece. You can contact me with any questions.
