The majesty of brilliant orange light through blue-purple storm clouds is the inspiration for this long, colorful necklace. Orange sapphire and tanzanite are the glorious gemstones providing the sparkling color, interspaced with warm 14kt gold-fill beads and hammered pendant. Although sapphire is best known as blue, it can be a wide range of color, including yellow, orange, green and pink. Sapphire is corundum, an aluminum oxide mineral that has been prized as a decorative stone since ancient times. It is found in alluvial deposits since it is harder than the metamorphic rock it forms in and withstands weathering to a greater degree. Tanzanite is a blue-purple variety of zoisite, which is a "sister" silicate, meaning that an oxygen atom is shared between two silica tetrahedra and these occur within a larger aluminum oxide matrix. As the name suggests, most tanzanite comes from Tanzania, and it is the most valuable of the zoisites. Zoisites are grouped with the feldspars since both are aluminosilicates with comparable ratios of silicone and oxygen, though their crystalline structure is different. Cost: $177.00 USD
