Wabi Sabi 016
A 0.27 carat blazing red Pyrope Garnet from Africa faceted in a brilliant cut by artist John Bailey and installed in natural Obsidian found in Oregon.
Pyrope, or “fire-colored” Garnet, a traditional birthstone for January, is associated with passionate energies, love, commitment, and inspiration.
Obsidian (volcanic glass) is Earth’s inner fire come to our realm – conveying the resilience to move through fire, to transform, and bestow both beauty and utility. Cultures the world over have used and recognized it for millennia.
