Description
 
Leland Blue (Antique Foundry Glass) and Sterling Silver Pendant

Leland Blue is an antique foundry glass that is the byproduct of the short-lived days of smelting iron ore in NW Michigan.The Upper Peninsula Mesabi Iron Ranges supplied the ore. A high grade charcoal made only from beech and maple combined with local limestone flux reduced the iron ore to pig iron, creating a unique foundry glass. Smelting began in 1875 and by 1900 had ceased due to lack of hardwood.

I designed this setting to enhance the amazing color of this Leland Blue Foundry Glass.

1-1/2" high x 1 1/4" at widest point x 3/16" deep
