Azurite is a stunning copper ore mineral with bands of blue and green. The stone has been turned to a taper and then decorated with two half round beads.... all hand turned on the lathe. The upper section of polished stainless steel contains the superb ultimate 29mm Extra Dense Silvertip badge knot.

#1468 - Aztec Honey Jasper

Made with a 10 degree taper towards the top, and an almost square base. The end result is a round brush handle with large flat facets. The facets are very smooth but with a satin finish,contrasting slightly with the high polish of the round parts. Two 1/4" half round beadings at the base with a smaller 1/8" bead just above.

Note that the colour of this material is not particuarly accurate in this photo. In real life it is more beige/magnolia coloured.
