|Rare gem Chrysocolla,
probably from Arizona. This material is nice and hard, as it is silicated
naturally, unlike the pure mineral Chrysocolla, which is actually quite soft. So
this takes a good polish and wears well. It even shows some green malachite
inclusions. Malachite and Chrysocolla are both ores of copper, and the bright
colors are a result of the copper. |
Extra fancy sterling work by Ann, for those who want something really extra from an artistic standpoint. Ann is exceptionally artistic and loves working with meticulous detail. (Stock #Pws-chrys-20x13) $75.00
|Rare, Turkish purple jade (jadeite). Very fine 28x22 mm oval gem cab. The best in purple jade, very fine.

|Rare, genuine Apple green Jade (nephrite) from Wyoming. Gem cut from the finest quality old material, seldom available. Really nice symmetrical freeform cab, great polish, 20x25 mm, set affordably in sterling. Expertly wire-wrapped by Elle.
| Very rare Fairburn agate, the
South Dakota state gemstone. These agates are hard-to-find to begin with, and
many aren't too suitable for jewelry because either the stone is too valuable to
cut up, or it has too many cracks. This one has a reddish-brown and white color
with maybe a slight purplish tinge to part. Nice size too, the gem is 44x24 mm,
a good "bragging rock" you can actually wear. Fancy sterling setting by Ann.

|Rare, rare, rare! Genuine "Watermelon" Tourmaline (variety elbaite) from one of most famous Lithia mines, the Brown Derby, Gunnison, Colorado. This slice, natural on one side and polished on the front, is almost an inch and a quarter across! Light pink with medium green rind, in the shape of the original hexagonal crystal. Tourmalines from there were never gem quality in terms of clarity, but color variety was outstanding. These pieces (especially complete crystal sections of watermelon) are very hard to come by, and this is the first I have seen or heard of being made into jewelry. The gem is 30x30. Wire wrap done by Elle
$150.00 (Stock #PwSS-Tour-30x30)

|PLEASE NOTE: Much effort has been made in the attempt to get as accurate a picture as possible of our gemstones. Keep the following in mind while shopping: Cameras do not see color exactly the same as the human eye and lighting conditions often cause large variances. When taking pictures for the web, we have found that it is very difficult to capture the brilliance that the human eye sees and photos cannot often show all of the stones' ambiance and jewelry pieces' fine detail. Also computer monitors vary and often color tones are set to suit the viewer's preferences. When shopping, remember that "the pictures are meant as a rough guide only." All our products have a money-back guarantee (see terms above) so there is no risk in ordering from the Buena Vista Gem Works.|
