Tiffany Stone Pendant
A beautiful Tiffany Stone pendant featuring a meticulously chosen, fine grade gemstone mounted in a hand crafted sterling silver setting.
Tiffany Stone is a rare type of rock which can only be found in one specific location in Western Utah but the area is now off limits so no further mining is currently possible. It's widely stated online that it was named because of its similarity to Tiffany Glass but we cannot find any documented evidence at all to support this despite extensive and thorough research.
Made up of many different minerals, Tiffany Stone is sometimes called Bertrandite which is not correct although it does contain this beryllium rich mineral and it's the very reason why the vast majority of Tiffany Stone is crushed up. Beryllium is one of the lightest of all metals which also has one of the highest melting points so it's highly sought after for use in industry.
Quartz, fluorite and manganese oxide are believed to be the cause of the stone's distinctive colour and since being discovered, its primary use is as a gemstone and one which is extremely popular for use in ladies jewellery.
This striking cabochon boasts wonderful colour and markings and has been mounted in a fine, sterling silver setting. With the only area in the world where Tiffany Stone can be found now being closed for the foreseeable future, this beautiful and very eye catching gemstone is going to become even rarer than it already is.
