Hello All. My name is Kurt and I own Foothills Gemstones, based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, USA. I custom cut all of my gemstones that I will be listing on an antiquated Ultra Tec faceting machine without computers, I use pen and paper for my designs, and each piece is a unique piece of art, I rarely cut the same design twice.Now about the stoneā€¦

I ran across a small parcel of this rough from a friend in one of my social networking circles who has contacts in Mexico, this material comes from Sinaloa and hasn’t been on the market widely in quite some time, not sure about the availability of the material or even if it can still be found. The phenomenon of this material is its ability to change color under different lighting, it changes from a blue to golden yellow, often flip flopping, however incandescent light tends to bring more of the golden color out. The cut is somewhat of a version of a shield cut that I just made up as I was faceting, no real planning in this one, but the shape is very original which is how I like to facet.

This piece is considered VS and has a slight inclusion but is very difficult to see without magnification.

A copy of the original handwritten cutting diagram will accompany this stone when purchased.
