Beautiful.  The color and pattern reminds me of Horse Canyon Plume and Moss.  I forget do you have an ultrasonic drill for the holes?

Yes which is nice as it cuts way down on chipping in a brittle stone such as this one.

First time I've heard of an ultrasonic drill, already looked it up at Highland Park Lapidary. I'm jealous, I won't be getting one anytime soon.

That ultrasonic will not make holes like this, I use a Imahashi and have for 30 years.

Although not  nearly as perfect as you pendant, this jade makes up for it in size.   https://www.heraldnet.com/life/rockhounds-unearth-a-righteous-gemstone-near-darrington/

Oh yeah - not a hint of inconsistency in that reflection from your polish. You turned that into a great pendant.
