Green-blue Chrysocolla Yellow Gold Necklace
Chrysocolla is often found in the same vicinity as copper mines. They’re usually found in Africa but also occur in different locations. When it comes to seeking out noteworthy ones, opacity is a factor. Opaque chrysocolla is less desirable and less sought after.The translucent ones are the best of the best. This particular green-blue chrysocolla is just beautifully translucent. It’s a cabochon cut, which gives it a smooth, polished appearance with a subtle, waxy luster. The color is gorgeous and a lovely shade that is a soft contrast to the warm tone of its yellow gold setting. To showcase this gemstone fully, we used our signature laser setting, which is a free-form technique that allows us to highlight the soft curvature of the gemstone with minimal treatment. The smooth, polished gold setting goes perfectly with the translucent, soft luster of the chrysocolla, and the polished decorative elements along the base give this a classic yet contemporary feel. It’s a wonderful piece that’s designed to be worn on special occasions or as a statement piece with casual wear.
