Coppers in Matrix

Coppers in Matrix


Copper long slumbered as a "cheap" material, but recently copper prices have skyrocketed and jewelers are taking a second look at the possibilities of this colorful metal. Below are the creme de la creme of copper cabochons: Heavy with real ("native") copper, their gleaming surfaces also boast interesting patterning created by the surrounding matrix. Different types of matrix provide variation in color and lead to different names. Consider these stones when working with patinated metals, as well as if you're making jewelry using copper sheet or wire.
