Spectrolite Cadenza by jessa1155 Spectrolite Cadenza by jessa1155
For sale on Etsy~ [link]
This is a very special piece! This is a one-of-a-kind hand-fabricated reversible sterling silver pendant featuring an extraordinary spectrolite cabochon. We've taken faceted pink spinel, peridot, amethyst and spessartite garnet and inset the gems into the back of the spectrolite. We included a tube set-gem connector for this design which enables the wearer to flip the pendant to either side without removing the necklace. We used a gorgeous rhodolite garnet for the gem connector which matches the spectrolite cabochon perfectly.

This necklace was featured in best-selling gemology author Renee Newman's most recent book "Exotic Gemstones Vol 1".

* Spectrolite is a type of translucent feldspar which displays strong iridescence when viewed from different angles. The colors flash and roll but the color flashes are not constant. If you are not familiar with this material please send me a convo.. I'd be happy to forward a video showing the material in action.

This is great. I really like the inclusion of the faceted stones to accent the spectrolite.
