Unusual Stone - the Hypersthene

My new gemstone supplier has introduced me to a whole bucketload of new stones. This one is a hypersthene. Never heard of this before but I just love it. The colour is a deep mink brown and the concentric circles catch in the light giving it the typical hypersthene appearance. I wrapped this tiny teardrop in sterling silver and placed it on a tarnish resistant chain with my own hand crafted hook. It is a very simple but elegant piece.

Materials: sterling silver wire hypersthene gemstone
