Remember there were some Sapphirine cabochons that looked to have a purple hue? Well I picked these out and will add to this smooth top purple cab in oval shape. Doesn't it look delicious?

Take a look at these! Vintage Saphiret faceted glass stones with old micro glass seed beads, steel beads and pressed opal glass with silver lining. Vintage machine cut pear shaped stones from Czechoslovakia.
On the last photo you see the frosted Sapphirine cabochons. These tiny round flatbacks are new Swarovski Cappuccino DeLight.

One of my best finds! These come in their original package with a color name Sapphirine. Flat backed, unfoiled and with frosted finish. Sappharine glass is a combination of brown with blue. How interesting, the hue of blue is inconsistent in these stones, from aqua to sapphire to almost purple?
So happy to find these for I've searched for Saphiret or Sapphirine glass for jewelry making. I'll probably use silver colored settings for these so the silver color metal will glow through the stone and present the color play of blue and brown!
