New Bracelet: The Blood Moon Eclipse

New Bracelet: The Blood Moon Eclipse

On January 31, 2018, just before sunrise, there was a super blue blood moon eclipse at the time of moon-set, which was around 6:30 a.m. Central Time.

A blue moon is when there are two full moons in a calendar month. A super moon is a moon which is extremely close to the earth at the time of the full moon. The blood moon is an eclipse of the moon when the earth’s shadow crosses the full moon and the darkened moon appears reddish.

The concurrence of all three events is extremely rare and so is the blood moon eclipse stone featured in my new bracelet.

When this nodule was sliced open, it had the dark spot at the bottom where an ancient sagenite had fallen out of the stone. It reminded me of the blood  moon setting in West Texas. The multicolored yellows in the center of the stone reminded me of the light reflected from the darkened blood moon into the clouds above as the moon set.

This is not the most colorful or spectacular stone from The Carver which has become one of my bracelets, but I think it is the most cool. Enjoy. See Bracelet #26 in the Shop for more views.
