Natural Tiffany Stone Pendant

one of a kind
Gemstone to enhance your outfit.
Tiffany Stone is named for its appearance like that of a Tiffany Lamp. Of course, the material is totally different, opalized fluorite mined in the Thomas Range of Mountains in Utah. We have bought some of our material from vendors near the mine, which is heavily guarded. The material has gone up tremendously in price over the past few years, and really great material is getting harder to find. We got most of ours a few years ago, so that allows us to keep the prices modest.
OPAL FLUORITE (TIFFANY STONE)
These unique “opalized fluorite nodules are only found in Utah, within the “Thomas Range” These nodules are formed by various minerals circulating in subscale underground rivers, and are formed together when they penetrate volcanic tuff layers. These layers consist mostly of various forms of SiOx, mainly quartz, chalcedony, agate and opal. The fluorite nodules vary considerably in total fluorite content which makes thee nodules so interesting, forming a wider variety of aesthetic and colorful patterns within the nodules. The color of the fluorite varies from a light blue to a deep reddish, violet color. Occasionally these nodules have hollow areas (like geodes) that contain either quartz crystals, fluorite crystals, halite opal or a variety of other minerals. One more noteworthy feature of these nodules is they fluoresce a bright green color under short wave violet illumination.
Lapidary is the craft of designing, sawing, grinding & polishing, milling & drilling, and wiring precious stones. There are up to 30 steps to create a gemstone. We do over 90% of this work in our own shop to create the finished pieces you see on JimzGemz.
We started making gemstones when I retired in 2011. So far, we have made over 15,000, and sold over 7,000 pieces. Business continues to grow, and we are pleased to provide for you our natural, hand-crafted products.
