Chalcedony and Oregon Sunstone Brooch

$6,800.00

This natural black chalcedony sculpture by Steve Walters features elegant carving in contrast with the rough, almost bark-like edges. An exceptional cabochon of Oregon Sunstone is cut so the internal schiller (a coppery inclusion for which the stone is famous) shows in perfect horizontal bands. One fine diamond finishes the piece perfectly.

  • Oregon Sunstone
  • Montana Agate
  • 0.10ct Diamond
  • 18kt Gold
  • approximately 80mm x 20mm (3.15" x 0.79")
  • hardware could be added to hang this brooch as a pendant
  • made in the USA by Dalan Hargrave for ART Guyon  

ABOUT THE GEMSTONES   

Chalcedony is an amazingly rich and diverse family of gemstones. Naturally colored black chalcedony is quite rare, and difficult to source today. For more information, CLICK HERE. 

Sunstone is part of the feldspar family. While sunstone is found in localities throughout the world, Oregon Sunstone is the exclusive locale for sunstone colored by the presence of copper. This creates a range of beautiful and unique colors available in this gemstone. Oregon Sunstone also exhibits an effect known as copper schiller (or aventurescence); this phenomenon is most easily described as a metallic glitter which appears suspended within the gemstone.
