Picasso Marble Pendant
Picasso Marble Ladies Pendant
Picasso Marble also known as Picasso Stone and Picasso Jasper although the latter is not deemed to be geologically accurate. Picasso Marble is a type of metamorphic rock which occurs in a limited number of locations around the world. It's particularly distinctive and popular as a lapidary material and when used as a gemstone is almost always cut as a cabochon. This particular stone 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 this is genuinely factual.
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.
