Thomsonite 14KY Sterling Pendant by Lori Braun $580.00 #PT939
You'll find the colorless, white, beige/pink and pine greens to be a Michigan and Minnesota rare find, and a rock hounder's prize. The modeling, liken to a turtle shell, is more random,
Lori Braun surrounds the thomsonite with light layers of texture using high polish 14KY and sterling. Additional reflection adds an illusion of layers and adornment to the colorful patterns of color within the thomsonite.
The overall length is 3/4" x 1/2"

This pendant is Minnesota made and a "limited edition" by Lori Braun
*Capturing the color of thomsonite is challenging. The best representation is the last picture, yet even that one isn't a perfect representation. (I tried.)
"Thomsonite occurs with other zeolites in the amygdaloidal cavities of basaltic volcanic rocks, and occasionally in granitic pegmatites. Examples have been found in Faroe Islands (var.Faroelite), Scotland, Arkansas, Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oregon, Ontario, Nova Scotia, India, and Russia." Wikipedia
