SLAB DESCRIPTION:

Rare beautiful translucent iridescent purple Chalcedony. It contains chlorite inclusions that can be seen on the backside. It was preformed by sanding and shaping with 120 to 600 diamond grit. The 600 grit gives it a nice shine and prepares it for high polish, the front and back are flat. Finish it for a beautiful ring or pendant.

This material is no longer being mined and it's very hard to find on the internet. The local Government withdrew the property to use as road fill. Don't mistake this material for the Purple Chalcedony that comes from West Java, it's just not the same. The chlorite is soluble in acid or chemicals like acetone.

Approx sizes: 13 x 18 x 6 mm, 14 ct.

There were 2 types of East Java Chalcedony that came from the same region of East Java. One contains a rare chlorite inclusion in a beautiful lavender to purple iridescent chalcedony. The other was a beautiful iridescent purple or lavender chalcedony without any inclusions.

INFO ON SLABS

Use my pictures with the 10 x 10 mm background squares and the 18 mm dime to help with size visualization. All pictures are taken dry.

I try to eliminate all the pits and open fractures and I smooth all sides. In the descriptions I will note anything I couldn't remove. Your getting a slab that is easy to finish and no waste to deal with. If you want to finish the slab(s) I have posted my recommendation on how to do this, see my website blog on Designsbyshirl.com.
Just a tip: always start with the grit I finish with or the next finer grit and use a light touch.
