Rare Metallic Indigo Blue MT Covellite Pendant Wire Wrapped Cabochon 14k Gold Fill

medium | sterling silver, covellite | pendant
This handmade wire wrapped 14k gf pendant is made with a natural stone cabochon of Montana Covellite. This material is very rare. Butte MT, USA was the the best source for this wonderful copper based stone, but it hasn't been collected for decades. This stone is highly metallic and looks like indigo chrome. The gold color in the stone is fool's gold aka pyrite.

I used heavy, 14k gold filled wire to make a sturdy setting for this large reflective stone. Gold filled wire is sold by the spot price for gold and is a lifetime product given care. It is much thicker and more durable than plating. A sheet of gold is applied to a base wire under heat and pressure for a permanent, thick coating of 14K gold.

stone ---- 35x23mm
pendant ---- 2.09" / 53mm long; .97" / 25mm wide
bail ---- 5mm
