VERY CHOICE Mookaite cab with two black dendrite vines that meet near the stone's center! This is truly a collectors cab or fine stone for your jewelry design.
Fabulous dendrites and colors in this cab. This is such an exceptionally nice cab I've added a few extra photos. Also, a photo of the back to show you how fast the dendrites can disappeared through the rough and how only one stone can be cut from most dendrite pattern in Mookaite when there are any to be found. It also takes a bit of luck when cutting into rough pieces that you cut just the right angle and area of the rough piece to get a good dendrite display.
I cut several hundred pounds of rough mookaite each year looking for unusual pattern/colors and dendrites. Very few dendrites with nice pattern are found in Mookaite. This one of the best stones I've had to offer!
Well cut for bezel or wire wrap setting with a flat back and low domed top. Both sides have a very smooth, very glassy polish.
