A purple, lavender, white stone sometimes with patches of mauve, yellowish-brown and black
is found in beryllium ore (Bertrandite) . This stone is known as opalite, ice cream opal, opalized fluorite and opal
fluorite. It is composed predominantly of dolomite, opalized fluorite but often found with minerals such as quartz
and chalcedony. The name Tiffany Stone presumably comes from the jewelry company of the same name used it
in some of their designs. .
The rareness of Tiffany Stone comes from the fact that to date, the only location it has been
found is at the Brush Wellman beryllium mine in the Topaz-Spor Mountains of Juab County's Sevier Desert, in
western Utah. Beryllium is a light-weight, high-strength yet brittle alkaline earth metal which is used in
structural materials for aircraft, missiles, communication satellites and space vehicles.
The eyes are inlaid of Sleeping Beauty turquoise and the horns are created from fossil ivory.
The fetish is initialed LQ in his typical manner. Great for your medicine bag!
