Pale sapphire and peridot glass stone surround an amazing center stone with straight-line striations -- known as porphyry glass -- in a Carnegie-favored leaf motif.

You can wear this gorgeous piece in a variety of positions -- the photos show it vertically, so it looks like a kite, horizontally and at a right angle. You decide which of these choices you prefer, or you may think of another!
