Gemstone Cabochons

Agate Cabochons

Agate is a microcrystalline form of quartz or silica, chiefly chalcedony, known for its fine grain and bright color. Although agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are typically associated with volcanic rocks. Most agates occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or ancient lava. Formed by cavities in the lava which were filled with silica deposited in layers. You can see these layers in banded agate.

Amazonite Cabochons

Amazonite is a microcline form of feldspar and although the name is taken from that of the Amazon River, it is highly unlikely that it was ever found there. In the past it's only source was a mountainous area in Russia. More recently, high-quality crystals have been obtained from Colorado, where it is found in conjunction with quartz, orthoclase, and albite in granite. Some other localities in the United States yield amazonite, and it is also found in Madagascar.

Astrophyllite Cabochons

Azurite Malachite Cabochons

Astrophyllite crystallizes in the form of stars stretched into thin plate crystals. Named from the Greek words "aster" (star) and "filon" (leaf). From Chibine on the Kola peninsula in the far north of Russia.

Azurite Malachite is a combination of two minerals azurite and malachite.  Azurite can undergo a chemical change that will cause it to become malachite, this results in stone with the properties and colors of both minerals.  Azurite is a brilliant blue and Malachite a brilliant green resulting is a beautiful stone.  This stone can also contain other minerals such as Cuprite, Calcite, Chrysocolla, and Copper.
