Tiffany Stone Pendant
Tiffany Stone from Western Utah
Tiffany Stone pendant featuring a highly polished cabochon with various shades of the colour purple. Mounted in a setting of fine sterling silver, this hand crafted pendant makes a unique and eye-catching piece of jewellery that would best suit being worn on a simple sterling silver chain. It comes with a colourful gift pouch that will help keep the stone safe and minimise any build-up of tarnish on the sterling silver.
Tiffany Stone is classified as a rock as opposed to a mineral because it's made up of several different minerals. Its blend of colours are believed to come from quartz and fluorite and it's a relatively rare stone that can only be found in one place in the world. Sadly the area in Western Utah where it's found is now permanently closed and off limits so the supply of Tiffany Stone is beginning to dry up.
Graded 4 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness means that Tiffany Stone is quite soft so must be handled with care.
