Of Tangerines And Murano

The Lunar New Year is just some 3 weeks away... and its a chinese custom to have tangerines during the festive season as they sound like gold in Cantonese... Saw this beautiful tangerine quartz today which got its unique orange-yellow colouration from iron present in it matrix. A rather unique and interesting colour... another amazing piece of artwork from mother Nature herself.

Got from JAM creation a murano gold glass bead.. which makes quite an interesting choker piece too:
