Lapidary Gemstones and Crystals – Create With Rare Beauty
Sonora Sunrise / Sonora Sunset
Sonora Sunrise Jasper from Milpillas, Mexico. This is a stunning combination of Cuprite (red/orange), Chrysocolla (blue/green), and Tenorite (black). This is some of the most eye catching material I’ve seen! It has striking blood red and greenish blue colors, and it cuts astonishing cabochons that are perfect for today’s fine designer jewelry (or a personal collection). These Sonora Sunrise slabs come from a very early find when the colors and patterns were at their best. The recent specimens have dropped dramatically in quality, indicating the end of the pocket has been reached.
If you like this material you may also like chrysocolla, shattuckite, or the ever-popular turquoise.
