Wabi Sabi 049
A lovely and unusually-bright brilliant-cut 0.50 carat Peridot with rare Ludwigite needle inclusions from the Soppat mines in Pakistan, installed in brown Basalt collected on the Oregon coast.
Peridot, the birthstone for August, has magical origins – born in the fire of lavas, or arriving in pallasite meteorites. Thus, it represents magical degrees of endurance, travel, and transformation and shows the color of growth, good fortune, and abundance.
Basalt is hardened lava – turning fire into solid rock – and the richest soil. It is a stone of courage, transformation, perseverance, and character.
