The Blue Season

December 7, 2016 § 1 Comment

Every now and then, I try to do the “right” thing! Get with the program and make a smart business move: like get timely with birthstones. So this month, I made a couple of things with tanzanite and turquoise (December’s birthstones) and then I just made whatever the heck.

I just love inclusions. Dendritic agate = a whole little miniature world in and unto itself.

Speaking of inclusions, in my stash of goodies, I had a couple of very rare paraiba quartz pieces (aka Medusa quartz). This stone comes from a mine in Brazil, that has since closed. The inclusions are called “gilalite”, which is blah blah blah for the mineral that gives the gorgeous blue/green color inclusions.

Then, since we’re still waiting for a frost down here in the Big Easy, I took a couple of icy Herkimer diamonds out, and paired them with some drop dead gorgeous aquamarines. Very cool (pun intended).

Want more birthstone pieces? Let me present an encore viewing of some rocks that a December baby or pretty much anyone else would love (clicking on any image takes you to the shop).

For many people, holidays really are the “blue” season. This is the time of year that loneliness and depression affect people more than at any other time of year. Be kind, you never know who is suffering. Peace.
