Ricolite Cabochons

This lovely variety of Serpentine with dark and light green banding is known as Ricolite and comes from New Mexico. It is fairly soft, about 4.5, so care must be taken but it takes a good polish and makes lovely Ricolite cabochons.

Ricolite comes from a remote and inaccessible area in southwest New Mexico.  The name Ricolite means "rich stone" and it was officially recognized in 1889.
