Covellite is a rare mineral composed of copper sulfide. This lovely material came from Butte, Montana.
Covellite cabochons are beautiful metallic-looking stones that are gun metal blue with occasional pockets of purple iridescence and flecks of bright gold pyrite. It was named after the Italian mineralogist Niccolo Covelli (1790-1829) who first discovered this mineral on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius.
Metaphysical Properties: Covellite is said to help one maintain a positive outlook. It can help structure one's thoughts so that ideas can be expressed clearly.
These cabochons are cut with a pretty flat surface and backed with a thin layer of black agate for stability. Due to the metallic finish, this material is very hard to photograph! These are beautiful!!
