The Rainbow Inside


The Rainbow Inside


This magical stone keeps itself hidden and appears rather plain and dark without direct light. But give it some sun and observe how the rainbow inside pops and glows! Give this unique, one of a kind pendant, along with this encouraging message, to someone who just needs a gentle reminder and a little support in life: Let your light shine and don’t hide your rainbow—you are beautiful and one of a kind.

A little bit about the stone: Rainbow Obsidian is actually volcanic glass. The cooling rates of various types of magma create “flow bands” which result in the spectacular layers of color. There is quite an art and science to cutting this material; imagine cutting angles into layered polymer clay (e.g. Fimo, Sculpey). Isn’t it awesome that something so hot can result in something so cool?


Materials: Rainbow obsidian cabochon, sterling silver wire and bail.

Size: Length with bail: ~65mm (~2 ½")
