Local rhodonite and variolite pendants
« on: June 17, 2017, 09:52:14 PM »

Been cutting like crazy but keep running into cracks and undercutting among other issues so it's been hard to finish much. This afternoon after diddling with a few of them going back and forth for a while I got to an acceptable finish on these two "locals" the first being pink rhodonite and secondly a variolite from the beach. Two stones I appreciate very much. Happy cutting!

I usually am not fond of rhodonite, but your combination of pattern/color selection plus a crisp cut and interesting sail shape really caught my eye.
