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.

Thanks very much:) I wish I could have captured the full color in the faceted gems... they look much brighter and more color saturated in person. It's VERY tricky to get a photo that shows the color-flash in the spectrolite as well as the the color in the accent gems!

Simply gorgeous. This is one of those pieces that truly demonstrates the best there is in this mineral. The additional gems do a lovely job of calling out each and every color in the spectrolite. Fabulous!
