Kevin Gauthier of the Korner Gem, Traverse City, MI has been collecting, polishing, cutting and making gorgeous jewelry out of Michigan stones since he was a boy. If you are familiar with Leland, Michigan, you could call this a tribute to the Bluebird restaurant!
The pendant is cast sterling with Leland blue stone, with a sterling bail to hang on a chain. It is 1" long overall. No two stones are alike.... and that is part of their charm.
Leland Blue Stone is a beautiful by-product of the old Leland Ironworks which operated from the late 1880s through about 1918. Its range of color is gorgeously varied - from purplish indigo to sky blue, turquoise and olive green.
