This was a cool project. Started last August when I got to spend the day with PANA Mine owner Ales Krivanek.
I saw this beautiful piece of rough sparkle when revealed by moving my huge mound of rough and I was as excited as a kid getting their first bike!
I sent the 62.6 ct piece of rough to one of my favorite Lapidary Artists and he recommended I send it to Aaron Sangenitto for carving.We spoke I sent him my pendant design and we plotted it shape and design. I loved his suggested carving concept and I asked if he could facet it as well. The outcome exceeded my expectations.
The pendant is 14k Yellow Gold, that incredible 13.13 ct 27.56 x 10.40 mm Orange Schiller Oregon Sunstone, 39 White and 3 Orange Sapphires.
