This is your chance to own a very rare UP of Michigan stone the datolite. This datolite necklace is set with a beautiful reddish brown datolite (it looks maroon to me in most light) that I cut from a rough stone. I hand crafted the silver setting that holds it as well. Datolite is most often white in color and resembles howlite with the dark web like lines through it. This stone has a bit of webbing as well on the left that travels to the right side towards the bottom. Datolite is very collectible and is now so rare that it's difficult to get nice cutting rough. I typically cannot afford it. I've been holding onto a jar full for many years and finally decided to start making some into jewelry. I chose a teardrop shape for this stone and set it in solid sterling silver .925. So far in all my years of rock hounding I"ve only ever personally found one piece of datolite a pink stone within a larger piece of basalt with several other minerals. Some day I'd like to get back over to the Keewenaw with the hope of finding more. This pendant measures 1.01 x .57 in inches. The included solid sterling silver chain is 20 inches in length.

In the global market we encourage you to shop local by supporting artists and small businesses who cut stones within the U.S.A. All of our stones and fordite are made by us, within our home, in Wisconsin.

Our stones are mirror polished and so there will be reflections in the pictures. We take pictures in direct bright light that simulates what your stone will look like in direct sunlight. Stones look very different in low or artificial light. If it's dark when you receive them you can use the flashlight feature on your smart phone to see what they will look like in daylight. If you are new to semi precious stones please understand that these stones are natural and were found or dug from the earth. These are not faceted altered or man made stones you see in stores. Natural stones (especially agates) may have features that would be considered flaws in a faceted stone or manufactured stone. Natural stones can have internal fractures, natural holes or geode areas. If there are features we as professional lapidary artists feel may detract from a stone we do our best to describe them in the listing description and show them in the pictures.We charge based on size and quality of the stone as well as market factors. We don’t dabble in the art of stone cutting. Brain is a full time lapidary artist so if you buy from us you are buying a high quality stone made by an experienced professional artist. We are a legitimate small business licensed as an LLC in Wisconsin. Our business mission is to create happiness through our art.
