This bracelet belonged to my husband's elderly aunt and she gave it to me shortly before she passed away because she knew I always admired it. I don't know what the stones are, but there are nine cabochon stones all the same size (approx 3/8" diam.). The really neat thing is they're the colors of the rainbow, in order - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. As you can see in the photos, they're perfectly matched as they change from one hue to the next. Now, what I don't know is they seem to "glow" when the light shines on them, as if there is some inner fire. I'm familiar with saphiret glass, and it's VERY similar to that. But I know there are other stones that have this capacity and could it be something I'm not aware of? It's from the turn of the century, and in perfect condition. There are no markings of any kind. Thanks for any information as to identification and/or value.
