Sonora Sunrise Pendant Crimson Cuprite Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Natural Stone Cabochon

This gorgeous wire wrapped natural stone is known by two names- Sonora Sunrise or Crimson Cuprite. It was found in Sonora Mexico before it was mined out. It is most often found with chrysocolla and tenorite as well, but this has the more rare green colored conichalcite or brochantite. This cabochon even has a shiny reflective line of pyrite.

The handmade setting is made with sterling silver wire (not coated, filled or plated). I wanted to frame this stone with a little character. It's so bright that I was reminded of the sun or a flower, so I added "rays" or "petals". This is a new design for me and trickier than it looks. After all the fussing, I think it came out great! I will be doing this again.
