Chrysoprase Jewelry for Daily Wear
My dad bought a top quality 2-kg seam of Aussie material back in the late Fifties. It was the first really good material I got to work on when I started cabbing. Both my dad and I have jewelry pieces crafted in the mid Sixties that are just as vibrant as the day they were cut. Dad wears his ring every day, and we get a fair amount of sun here in Southern California.
