The stone of summer!

I’ve been making a few pieces in the last few weeks featuring what I know think of as THE stone for summer.

Every time I make something with this stone - I have visions in my head of white sandy beaches, and palm trees. Also, one of those fancy cocktails with pineapple and coconut or something (which doesn’t really appeal taste wise but looks great in my daydream).

If you follow me on instagram or on my facebook page you might already know what I’m talking about because I keep going on and on (and on) about it. But if not, let me introduce you to Sea Blue Agate.

It’s one of those gorgeous stones, a bit like white moonstone, in which the colour seems to swirl around like mist and change a little in the light.

I think this may have just overtaken Turquoise as the stone of summer in my mind. I’d love to know what you think.
