Question:

On the cover of your book Wirework, you use a beautiful stone that you list as eudialyte. I have not been able to locate it anywhere. Can you tell me the source?

-Carol in Lake Kiowa, Texas

Answer:

Carol, Eudialyte comes from only a few sources; the cabs I use are from the Kola Peninsula in Russia. Although I did pick up a few additional cabochons on my recent visit to Russia, the best way to find and purchase them is either at a gem show or by doing an Internet search using the phrase, "Russian Eudialyte cabochon loose". Be warned, Eudialyte is rather rare, as its prices will reflect.
