Cacoxenite in Amethyst handmade necklace
Made using plated- silver
The stone is Amethyst Cacoxenite, also known as the “Melody Stone” or the “Super Seven crystal,” which are both trademarked terms. I read that the miners who showed Melody—author of the book Love is in the Earth— this stone originally named it after her, in her honor. It is said that the Melody Stone was first discovered in Espiritu Santo, Brazil. It is a combination of seven different mineral specimens: amethyst, quartz, rutile, smokey quartz, goethite, lepidocrocite, cacoxenite, and sometimes hematite. Although it’s uncommon to have all these minerals in a single piece, more mines in Brazil are discovering the Melody Stone.
