Rainbow Fluorite Pendant
What looks like a relatively ordinary piece of rainbow fluorite really comes alive as this translucent gemstone is lit up from behind. This polished cabochon has been mounted as a ladies pendant in fine sterling silver and is a great choice for anyone who loves curious and fascinating crystals.
Rainbow fluorite is an extremely fragile stone so transforming it into a gemstone for use in jewellery can be particularly challenging. Grading just 4 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness it must be handled with care and will fracture easily especially if knocked or dropped. Darker rainbow fluorite stones like this one can appear to be quite ordinary at first glance however as you'll see from the photograph on our Facebook page, hold it up towards the light and you'll see Mother Nature's handiwork in all its glory.
It's not unusual for rainbow fluorite to have minor nicks, fractures or indentations but we have reduced this ladies pendant because there are two fractures at the top of the stone one of which can just about be felt on the surface. This special piece would be most suited to someone who loves the magic of crystals, rocks and minerals but prefers them to be a little rough around the edges.
As rainbow fluorite pendants go, this has to be one of our favourite pieces because of the transformation that can be seen with the addition of light behind the stone.
