Sonoran Sunrise, look what Mother Nature did!

I just cut these cabochons yesterday. Sonoran sunrise comes from the State of Sonora (Mexico). It's been on the gem scene now for a only couple of years and has become quite popular. It is primarily green to blueish green and red with a bit of black. The green is chrysocolla. The red is cuprite, and the black is tenorite. This material will make some beautiful pieces.
