Approximately 1.6 inches across, Leland Blue bead is about 0.75 inches long
The Leland Blue was collected, cut, and polished in Northern Michigan
Leland blue is a glass-like byproduct of the iron industry in Northern Michigan. Well over 100 years ago this byproduct, called slag, was discarded in Lake Michigan. It has been washing up on shore ever since, especially near its namesake town of Leland, MI. Jewelers and rockhounds have been collecting and using this "stone" for years. In my limited experience, it seems to be getting harder to find, especially cut and made into beads.
Leland blues vary a lot in color and pattern. Some have inclusions of minerals creating patterns of white, gray or black. Your pendant will be unique and the stone may not look exactly like these. I work with local stone cutters and personally choose the best stones for my jewelry.
Please choose a chain length for your pendant. I have included a reference photograph. My favorite chain length for this pendant is 20 inches.
