Sphalerite is one of the more unusual gems we carry. It is an ore of zinc, rarely occurring in gem quality, but when it does it comes in bright colors with remarkable high dispersion and brilliance. One of the coolest phenomenons in this material are the bi-color examples from Spain, which is what is set in the above pendant. The two colors here are a flame-red and golden yellow which combine with the high refraction to make a rainbow of sparkles in the gem. Sphalerite is a softer gem, so we only set them in earrings and pendants like this modern halo example.
Details: 14k white gold pendant with 4.58ct cushion Spanish Sphalerite and .24ctw diamonds.
