Gold ring with bluish quartz stone (hexagonal cut). 8.67 grams, size 7. Very thick and translucent stone (lacking brilliance due to the way it is mounted) with six flat gold sides simply pushed up against the stone and soldered to a simple, thick-wire ring, rather large for Spanish colonial-era fingers so probably meant to be worn over a glove. The stone itself is clear but appears slightly blue due to oxidation of copper impurities in the gold. Found on the beach at the Corrigans site. Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
