Faustite Obliqua Ring
One of the sweetest things I could think to do with this vintage faustite turquoise stone was to wrap it in some plant love. A hand cut monstera obliqua leaf ring band to compliment the wonderfully dreamy green and blue of this stone. Made entirely from recycled sterling silver, this ring will fit a size 10.
Faustite is one of 5 stones within the turquoise mineral family. Instead of the aluminum being replaced in turquoise, the zinc is replaced in faustite. The turquoise mineral group includes: Turquoise, Faustite, Chalcosiderite, Aheylite, and Planerite. This specific stone that I used in this ring was purchased from a collector that loves stones even more than I do. It was kept in a tiny lidded case with the name, how it was made, that it was mined in Austin, Nevada and cut in 1976. A vintage stone that has become a part of a ring that can be loved for generations.
The coloration of this blue-green stone is indescribable! With it's matrix veining and spots of robin's egg blue, it is the color of spring.
