Picasso Marble Pendant
Picasso Marble also known as Picasso Stone and Picasso Jasper although the latter is not deemed to be geologically correct, is a metamorphic rock which occurs in a small number of countries around the world. It's particularly distinctive and popular as a lapidary material and when used as a gemstone, is almost always cut en cabochon. The stone that we chose for this ladies pendant has an unusual and interesting box cut and is mounted in a fine sterling silver setting.
We have read whilst researching Picasso marble that it was named after the Italian artist Pablo Picasso because its markings were believed to have an abstract appearance however we have not been able to confirm conclusively whether it's a genuine fact.
This well polished gemstone has a dull lustre and is one of a very small number of Picasso Stone pendants that we currently have in our collection.
