Saginite Cabochons

Schalenblende Cabochons

Saginite has needle like formations of rutile which occurs in groups of crystal crossing at 60 degree angles often enclosed in quartz, agate or other minerals. Saginite may appear to contain fossilized materials but it does not. The rutiles are naturally occurring crystal formations within the rock.

Schalenblende is a quite striking blend of brassy and silvery metallic colors mixed with cream.  It is mined in southern Poland.

Sonora Sunset (Cuprite)

Sunstone Cabochons

Whether it's called Sonora Sunset or Sonora Sunrise, it is a wonderful new find out of Mexico. It is made up of Chrysocolla and Cuprite, which makes for a spectacular color combination of bright blue-green and red.

Sunstone is a feldspar which from different angles has brilliant shimmering patches.  This is caused by tiny enclosed scales of red hematite which reflect light.
