Description

The delicate, swirling colors of this black mother-of-pearl cabochon makse it a beautiful option to use for in pendant or brooch designs. Because of the fragility of the material, bezel-setting is not recommended; try tab-setting or another method that won't endanger the stone.

Named for its resemblance to the finish and color of pearls, mother-of-pearl cabochons are made from the hard, iridescent material that forms on the inside of some shells and shellfish. It is used for inlay and to create beads, cameos, cabochons, buttons, and other ornamental objects.
