Tiffany Stone Pendant
Large Tiffany Stone pendant featuring an impressive cabochon mounted for Stone Mania in fine sterling silver. This highly polished gemstone boasts exceptional colour and markings and undoubtedly makes a wonderfully eye-catching piece of ladies jewellery.
Tiffany Stone is a rare type of rock which can only be found in Western Utah in the USA. Part of the reason for its rarity is the fact that it's no longer mined because the area is now permanently off limits. The colours present in Tiffany Stone are believed to be caused by impurities of quartz and fluorite.
Although Tiffany Stone is sometimes called bertrandite, the name is not accurate because although bertrandite is present in Tiffany Stone, the two materials are not the same.
Despite its size, this Tiffany Stone pendant is not at all chunky hence is quite a light weight piece. The reason for it being added to our Bargain Basement is because there are a couple of very minor indentations in the surface of the stone which can only really be seen when it's examined carefully under bright light. This magnificent piece would be ideal for someone who loves large and colourful gemstone jewellery but who's not looking for absolute perfection.
