A specimen grade Designer cabochon
This is a hand cut chrysocolla cabochon which I hand cut myself in Late September of 2020. The rough itself actually originated from the Ray Mine of Arizona, USA and was unearthed back in 1987. I found two large pieces of rough at an estate and purchased them both for cutting. From those two, I managed to cut three nice stones, this being one of them.
This stone has some other trace minerals in it but its primary color is a beautiful teal blue. The back of the stone is mostly black do to the rough chunk cleaving along this plane of host rock. This is a natural color, not a backing.
Size: 33.7 x 16.5 x 10.8mm
Weight: 34.7 carats
Chrysocolla is a fragile stone, take care if setting in jewelry.
