A richly colored Cuprian Gem Silica, mined high in the Andes Moutains in Peru. This piece sports plenty of interesting inclusions, would make a stunning piece of statement jewelry. Gem Silica is technically a cryptocrystalline Quartz, a.k.a. Chalcedony, which is colored by tiny inclusions of Chrysocolla. It’s extremely stable, and durable enough for daily wear in any piece of custom jewelry, including as a ringstone. An excellent value for anyone searching for this color in a natural gem material!
