BLACK JADE SPHERE
A beautiful highly polished Black Jade Sphere. With a reflective surface like a mirror, you can see my reflection taking the photos. This is a Nephrite Black Jade Sphere from Western Australia. Jade is one of the many mineral treasures found in this vast land of Australia. These are not readily available and we never know if we can source more. It is iron impurities that adds the intense blackness to this jade. An essential for any jade or Aussie mineral collection. Great properties all round. Difficult to photograph with its highly reflective surface. Due to the very fine tight knit grain it takes one of the highest polishes of any stone. This sphere has a few characteristic white marks often visible in nephrite jade.

Polished Stones, Spheres
This is the best Rhodonite Sphere for sale with great colour and great size. The lovely Pink is the Rhodonite and the Black is Manganese Oxide. This beautiful pink and black sphere comes with a free hematite ring stand for enhanced display. A classic, collectable specimen mined, cut and polished in Australia. As you can see the beautiful pink color really comes out in the full sun photos. Normally I’d only take a few pics but just couldn’t help myself – it’s stunning. The high quality gloss finish is shown off better from pics in the shade outside.
