Amethyst Pendant

Shalini had a request for a large Amethyst pendant, her client wanted the deepest purple we had and as large as possible.
The only way that we could satisfy this request was to cut the dark purple area out of a lump of chevron, thankfully this worked and the pendant, wrapped in gold filled wire goes to its new home tomorrow.

 

As you an see from the picture below, I cut two cabs from the chevron, the client chose the one on the left.



What I have learnt from this project is just how hard it is to is to find a slab of deep purple amethyst these days.
