When I first started selling stones here on Etsy, it was to destash my collection. I'd collected baskets and drawers of beautiful stones, with the idea of learning to make jewelry one day. But they sat around in those drawers and baskets, and I felt guilty just hoarding them, so I listed a few. They sold out quickly, and I decided that I would go out and buy more, and see how that went. And that's how I became a stone-seller. I love the search, and the joy of discovering a beautiful stone - guilt-free - and then passing it on to someone who will love it *and* use it. I may have acquired a few more stones myself, in the process, so it didn't work out entirely as planned.
This stone is translucent - and if you hold it up to the light you can see that the green has crystalline formations - and you'll see that the pink and tan are also translucent. I've included a photo so you can see the pattern in the green, and how the pink glows when the light shines through it. But it's beautiful even without the light - the patterning and colors are at once unusual and beautiful. These stones always remind me outer space, and this one looks like a sunset on an alien planet.
My husband bought me digital calipers this summer. Best present ever! Now I can make very accurate measurements for my stones, and in record time:
46.67 long 30.05mm wide 4.32mm thick
Buying and selling stones over the internet will always be a distant second to buying the stones in real life - being able to hold them and see the colors for yourself. No matter how hard I try, there is no way I can guarantee that the stone will look exactly like the image you see on your monitor. I *can* guarantee that if you are not happy with your stone, you can return it for a full refund.
