These cabs are very well matched and will enable you to make multi-stone pieces or earrings with no problem. They are a smooth blue with a hint of green and only an occasional spot of matrix. I found them at the 2018 Spring Tucson Gem Show and have enough to sell you all some, even though I have others the same size listed from Kingman. These stones are so different in color...more like Sleeping Beauty, that I thought they were worthy of their own listing. There is a little variation in height, but that's easily solved by a little shim under the stone.
I can't tell the history of the stone, as I don't know. They look good and were reasonably priced, so I bought them while looking for the elusive 3mm stones! Because the booth owners were from New Mexico, I assume the stone started out in the Southwest somewhere and was cut in another country to sell in their store. I can't say if they were treated for hardness, but I usually assume calibrated stones are.
There are 10 stones in each of my parcels...and I take them off the card row by row.
I normally ship within 24 hours of your order. It is easiest for me to send jewelry items through the post office...The same applies for most of my work, since it is seldom so heavy as to merit going to UPS or FED-EX. I share the cost of sending jewelry items with my customer. If it is a large item or supplies, I charge what I think it will cost to ship. Combining items always saves on cost of shipping, as we all know.
Paypal or Direct Checkout are the best payment methods for myself and my customer. They both accept credit cards and make it possible for me to send your item immediately. If you need to send a check or money order, I will send the item as soon as it is cleared. If you need to cancel an order, do it immediately, please!

Additional return information
If the item arrives damaged or it doesn't arrive...please let me know and we will get your purchase to you. I will have sent it, rest assured. If you feel I misrepresented an item, we will work it out or get you a refund. Customized pieces will be dealt with on a piece by piece basis, but if a name is on it a refund is doubtful!
I take a break from custom work from time to time, so I can spend full time in creative mode. I assure you I will contact you if you happen to order during that period of time. Usually it is planned during a "lull". Any other questions will be answered by yours truly if you care to contact me! :)
