Gem of the Month / Re: Rhodonite
« on: February 03, 2013, 08:25:38 PM »
I have a question, some of the boys in my local club talk about Royal Rhodonite and those who one the peice will say it is and thoses that do not own it will often say its not and just plain Rhodonite.

So my question is- what is the differance between Rhodonite, Royal Rhodonite and Imperial Rhodonite?

Is it simply the royal and imperial have a deeper more red colour?

I am interested to hear the thought of those who are more learned then myself on the matter.

hello all.
I'll jump in at 277 but my question is where do you people find this material!!

Beautiful coloured slabs, a dream for any one to work with. THANK YOU

Sorry jimnyjerry I thought I mentioned it in the first post (re checked and I forgot too) .

looking at the cab that was in it, it was 5-7 mm oval and the size looked to have the right feel about it.

mick b, stunning work as always! lovely workmanship.

 hi jimnyjerry,
no setting as such, as it will have to be rebuilt no matter what we do. The original one contained something like an oval cabachoned tigers eye with filigree all around but the is not much left now. See pic’s.

If I can find a nice stone I will get it re mounted to suit.

[attachment deleted by admin]

I’m not really sure what to ask for.
My wife has an old ring and the setting broke off long ago and she has  asked if I could get something set in to it (a few gents at my lapidary club would/ could assist me).
I asked her what she would like and she said something green but not deep dark like an emerald more a solid bright green?? …………………. I’m not sure what that is……..?????  Or a nice pink stone.
I'm not a wealthy man so that rules out the flawless pink diamond and the equally perfect emerald but does open the door for many other possibilities. I guess it opens the doors for pink sapphires and solid bright green periodite, I’m not sure what else it out there that might work? She not keen on CZ.
She also said she like ovals and square cuts.
So I thought I get the word out there to the Aussie sapphire network and see if anyone has a stone or two they are willing to part with for a fair price. Of course I will need a picture so the boss can review first to confirm it meets the solid bright green criteria (whatever that is)? :o)
Thank you all!!
