Shiny Metallic Indigo Blue MT Covellite Pendant Wire Wrapped Cabochon Sterling Silver

medium | sterling silver, covellite | pendant
This handmade wire wrapped sterling silver pendant is made with a natural stone cabochon of Montana Covellite. This material is very rare. Leonard Mine, 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. This stone has some pits as does nearly all covellite, but they are small and because the stone is so reflective they aren't noticeable.

I used heavy, sterling silver wire to make a sturdy setting for this beautiful stone. I wrapped it simply and securely to let the stone take center stage.
