Arun Bohra @arunashibh bracelet made of titanium, set with Spinel, Black Opal and interesting milky white stone Cacholong, a form of common opal, which is generally milky white in color. It’s also extremely porous (hence the confusion with hydrophane opal), and this absorbent nature makes it highly suitable for perfume stones. It has a Mohs hardness of 6, making it easily carved or inlaid, so it is used for carving, cameos, etc.
Cacholong seems to have initially come to prominence through a number of Russian works of art in the mid to late 1800s, and Emperor Nicholas 11 commissioned a series of Cossack figurines that featured the stone.
A walk through the world famous Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg gives visitors an idea of how the stone was used in 19th century Russian art, especially by the nation’s famed mosaicists. One might see, for example, a cacholong daffodil set on a nephrite stem, or a mahogany cabinet with a mosaic of a tropical forest that features cacholong alongside jasper, lapis, and other stones.
The stone is found in a number of places Austria and the countries formerly known as Mongolia and Czechoslovakia , to name a few. However, much of the cacholong bought and sold in the world today is sourced from Russia and countries that border that massive nation. The stone is thought to be named after the Cach River , today known as the Kashkadarja a River in the Bukhara province of Uzbekistan , which has long been associated with deposits of cacholong.
