Surfite and Aqua Druzy Ring
Part of a larger collection, this colorful ring contains a multi-colored "stone" called Surfite, which is actually not a stone at all. Surfite is layered resin built up from the process of glassing surfboards. Google "surfite stone", and then for extra fun, google fordite, which is similar, but is made of layers of paint that has built up during the process of painting cars.
The stones in this collection are sunny and happy, and have hues of royal blue, turquoise blue, juicy orange, bright yellow, etc. This particular stone is predominantly dark and royal blue, with splashes of turquoise, white and purple. Set in a scalloped bezel, and accented with a sparkly aqua blue quartz druzy cabochon. Soldered to 22 gauge sterling silver sheet, and hand stamped with dashes and dots. Dimensions of the ring's face are 1 5/8" by 5/8". Ring size is 8 .25 US. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur to give depth and then buffed to bring out highlights.
