|From Cabochons for sale|
I say metal because I dont know what the black gun matel that makes up the majority of this piece is. It could be Hematite but the miner I got it from has yet to have it tested, as we could be wrong on the malachite ID too. However it is like black gun metal with an offset of quartz which has a couple fractures. The photos really dont do this piece justice and looks a little darker in person, but like black gun metal. Polished to a liquid shine and pro cut girdle for easy setting into your jewelry creation.
