All of the cabochons are polished by me. Some I have bought and recut but mainly they are cut and polished from either rough rock which I have first slabbed and trimmed or from slabs which I have bought then trimmed.

Rhodochrosite comes from Argentina and is a manganese carbonate mineral with chemical composition MnCO3. In its (rare) pure form, it is typically a rose-red color, but impure specimens can be shades of pink to pale brown. These cabochons are very good quality and the colour is natural, it hasn't been treated in any way.
This comes from Mexico and is a combination of cuprite (red), (but it also has Chalcotricite, which is the orangey red), chrysocolla (green) and black which I have been told is either copper or iron, depending who you ask.
The chrysocolla here comes from both Arizona and Australia. The Australian one tends to have more brown iron in the matrix. Both have malachite which is the green colour, as well.
The sodalite here is from Australia.
The amethyst here is from Australia.

This stone comes from Utah and looks like winter scenes of trees reflected in a river. It is manly greys but sometimes has a beautiful golden colour and a bit of cream.
