 A beautiful piece of Simbircite that one customer told me reminded them of a cobra standing up.  Simbircite is such a dramatic stone, so full of various textures and shades.  Semi-transparent and veined with various shades of amber and brown. It has dramatic grey/silver pyrite inclusions.   There is a small piece of faceted amber affixed to the bail.

Mined in the territory of Ulanovskaya (Simbirsk region) of Russia.  It was first found in 1765 but took on it's current name only in 1985.

It is comprised of calcite, marl, pyrite, and pieces of ammonites and various other ancient sea life. It is figured to take up to 160 million years to form.  It is both a fossil and a gemstone.  The silver pyrite lines were once the shells of the ammonite in which the crystals of the stone started to form.

I have a couple of rings with different inclusions from the same source.  I also have some spectacular Simbercite pieces in my Artie Yellowhorse collection.  It was Artie who first showed me this amazing stoneL
