Also known as Black Malachite. Psilomelane is a unique material for jewelry and lapidaries alike. It is so messy to cut but the black gun metal look is very pleasing when finished like this cabochon. Its a prefect combo or ascent piece for your jewelry creation. Polished on both sides. Make sure to click on the “Additional Information” tab to see size and girdle height.
Visit my Sold cabochon Gallery to see past opals I have cut. You will find other examples of materials, shapes, sizes, colors, and in general see my work there. Some stones date back over 15 years in there. I don’t show everything I cut, just the ones I really liked over the years.
Please let me know if you have any questions about those materials. Its also important to visit your local rockclub if you have one near by. Its a great place to start if you are new to gems and minerals. Thank you.
