Lepidolite in Silver by shadowfire-x Lepidolite in Silver by shadowfire-x
Lepidolite/Quartz pendant hand-wrapped in silver wire. This one took me well over an hour to make, and I am very pleased with the result. This pendant and more, all one-of-a-kind, are available for sale at my Etsy shop! Prices start at only $5! [link]

It may very well be - but, the texture screams lepidolite. The site I ordered the stones from has a tumbled stone identification chart, and this looks like the lepidolite on that chart. There's a great deal of color variation!

In may very well not be lepidolite, but an oddly purple quartz. Alas, I'm not a geologist, so I look through guides and do the best I can. Thank you for the kind words, though!

It may very well be. I can't very well bring it down to the electron microprobe to analyze it, so we'll go with lepidolite. :D

You are very welcome. :]
