Natural raw and rare puple purpurite stone prong set on blackened copper with sari textile


A large raw and rare purple purpurite - sometimes knows as the Freedom stone or Imperial Stone - prong set on textured blackened copper.

The removable strong hand dyed sari textile ribbon (each end with hand forged copper hooks) is around 13 inches (33cm) end to end. The focal is around 3 inches (7 1/2 cm) across for a total length of 16 inches (40 1/2 cm).

Purpurite, has long been used in jewelry, but was only recognised as a mineral in 1905. Like many colourful stones it was ground and used to create pigments during the renaissance. It is a relatively rare stone, its beautiful purple colour coming from the manganese in its composition.

My work is purposefully rustic reflecting my love for this aesthetic. My solder joins, hammer or tool marks are often visible on the finished piece. For me, these are beautiful because they reflect the processes and techniques used in creation and are signposts to the journey a piece has taken with me.

Care for your stone: Purpurite is less hard than other crystals like quartz, so take care not to drop.
