Finnish Spectrolites

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 20, 2015, 8:30 AM




 Spectrolite 7 (single photo) by DonnaKanailla Spectrolite 4 (single photo) by DonnaKanailla  Spectrolite 9 (single photo) by DonnaKanailla



The majority of my watchers voted for the educating journals and so be it. :D I've got loads of unusual stones in my collection and I've got some information about them I might share with you.

Do you guys know what I do love Finland for? Well, except the fact that our cherished traditional art CV Agaave comes from Finland. Giggle  The answer is simple - Finnish spectrolites. As you all might have guessed, I'm a big fan of labradorites. And those colorful babies are the rarest and most expensive labradorite sort you may find in the whole world. The main spectrolite deposit is located in Ylämaa in south-eastern Finland. But don't ask me how to pronounce that, as I've got no clue. :D Maybe some Finnish speaker would bring the enlightenment?

You may easily distinguish a spectrolite from any common labradorite. Spectrolites have got...

  1. Very bright, shiny, neon, vibrant color combinations. Labradorites are much more poor on colors and especially on color combinations.
  2. Spectrolites ain't translucent when you hold them against the sun light, flame , lamp or whatever. They are mostly very dark, nearly to black rocks. Some thin slabs may shine through, but those slabs have to be really thin.
  3. Spectrolites got some sort of the cat eye effect. They've got the angle when you see the black surface with a "cat eye" on it. I fear it's not easy to describe- just take a look at my videos in the end of the journal post.
And, of course, the price. Those minerals ain't easy to find and especially to get. A spectrolite cabochon may cost aroung 50-200$ and it's their ordinary price. They ain't cheap by all means.

Well, I'll add some words to my collection. The stones shown as thumbs are all mine. (My precioussssss!...) I'll use some of them for my crafts as well. I'm planning to let go some of them as I don't need tons of them. The 1st spectrolite I've used for crafts is this one. I've given it away as a Christmas gift for a bud of mine:

Azure Nebula by DeathMystery



I've got a fun story to tell about this pair of spectrolites. A friend of mine called them "anti-greed pills". It refers to an old Russian joke: "Doctor, I need some anti-greed pills! And more, MORE of them!!" Well, once you've seen a Finnish spectrolite for the 1st time, you can't get enough of them.

That's it for today. Hope you'll enjoy it. Meow :3 

Dune by DeathMystery
Dune
As I saw this picture jasper cabochon for the 1st time, it reminded me of a desert. Or better to say, Dune (Arrakis) desert from the science fiction novel by Frank Herbert. That's why I've made the rope in the snake or sand worm skin pattern.

Materials: Succor Creek picture jasper cabochon, Toho and Miyuki seed beads, tiger eye, jasper and wooden beads, metallic parts, leather.

Heart tree by DeathMystery
Heart tree
My inspiration was a heart tree from the fantasy story "Game of Thrones" by George Martin. You can even see the tree shape with red leaves in the stone itself. Or even a mirror image in the small pond nearby. The stones natural pattern reminds me of the ripples on the surface of water.

Materials: imperial jasper cabochon, Toho and Miyuki seed beads, Fimo polymer clay, aquamarine bead.

DD stamp I by dexter13-sk DD Stamp by Drake1 Honored 2 Have Gotten DD Stamp by Mirz123
Oh guys, guess what! :squee:  I can't believe I've got a 2nd DD today! OMG! I can't contain my excitement!  That totally made my day! The pendant that got featured - The Portal Guardian - was one of the toughest polymer clay miniatures I've ever crafted. I appreciate the fact that my efforts were recognized. Thank you, thank you dear Brookette for the feature! :hug:

Portal Guardian by DeathMystery


I am collecting the rarest and the most unusual stones I could get into my greedy fingers. Would you like me to share the backstage of the crafting process? The WIP photos, the craft supplies such as cabochons, beads?

Neuron by DeathMystery
Neuron
This picasso jasper cabochon reminds me of a neuron, that's why I've tried to add the matching frame. It's stabile. Those cords and beads ain't and you can move them the way you like. I've tried to combine the pendant with a shamanic necklace and I really like the result.

Materials: picasso jasper cabochon, Toho seed beads, wooden beads, obsidian and shungite splitters, wax cord, metallic parts, leather.

Mavka by DeathMystery
Mavka
Mavka (Navka, Nyavka) in Ukrainian are ghosts or the souls of persons that had met a tragic or premature death, particularly unchristened babies.

In Ukrainian mythology, Mavka is a type of mermaids with long flaxen hair. The name Mavka derives from Nav’ (Navka), which means "the embodiment of death." Mavky (plural) do not have a full body, have no reflection in water, do not cast shadows, and have no back, and so their insides can be seen.

Materials: labradorite cabochon, quarts, chrysolite, and labradorite splitters, metallic parts, wooden beads, Toho and Czech seed beads, leather.

I am a hobbyist artisan crafter, which means, making stuff isn't my primary profession. It's a hobby. The jewellery I'm producing is made for myself or for my buds. I might take a commission from time to time, but not very often. And nope, I do not have an etsy store. And none is planned. :)
