The reason one goes to the Tucson Gem Show is to see things that one never sees. In the collection of Greg Genovese I found this fabulous pair of chalcedonies. They happen to be a rare and prized chalcedony known as Coyomito agate. It all boils down to the most lace-like lavender gem you will ever see. These asymmetrical drops create an over-two- inch-long ear clip.  The geometric pattern and colors of the checkerboard cabochon ametrines can be seen from every angle and is the perfect complement to the chalcedonies.  Simply set in baskets with a brilliant trillion-cut Madeira citrine, black in crystal quartz and gold look spectacular.  Patterns are the height of fashion, and nature has met us more than halfway. I just did the matchmaking!
