I wanted to keep the raw nature of this beautiful piece of Thompsonite and opted to set in inside some wire work rather than have it cabbed for a setting. The greens and purples of this piece are rare and awesome.
A rare gemstone found on the north shore of Lake Superior. It is a zeolite that forms eye shaped patters due to it’s radiating formation and is composed of hydrous silicate with aluminum, sodium and calcium. It is commonly found as pink and white pebbles seldom larger than an inch in diameter in a basalt matrix. Less common are the greens and sometimes purple or blues.
Properties: Aids clarity of thought.
