Another green Washington pendant
« on: November 11, 2017, 06:47:58 PM »

Orthoclinopyroxine and enstatite pendant. 50 mm, 4 mm hole. The colors in this stone are the most saturated I have ever cut.

OMG, Frank!  That is drop dead gorgeous!!!!!  You have cut some amazing stones that you have showed us, but I think this one just blows the rest of them away.  Wow.

This was just a small patch on a very wave worn green diopside 10 lb cobble. I am very lucky I saw it before the cobble went into  the slab saw.Maybe enough for one more stone. This was from the beach near my house.
