Bright polished butterfly pendant gemstone carving. Translucent natural Brazilian origin brown agate, crystal necklace. Designed, hand-carved, and vibrating tumbler-polished handmade jewelry for girls and women. The stone is a brownish version of Carnelian, when light is held behind, traces of red show in it too. Drilled with a 1 mm hole, set with a sterling silver jewelry wire-created hanger, and with a silver plated 20″ x 1.5 mm snake chain necklace.
stone size: 41.6 x 27.7 x 6.6 mm 53.30 ct. overall pendant height, 34.5 mm
The stone is from a private collection, collected a few years ago in Brazil. The pendant is not an oriental-made mass product, carved with hand tools, and uniquely made, no other is available from this stone, however other similar butterflies carved from different gemstones are also available in my shop.
I can personalize it, by carving or engraving an initial or name on the back of the pendant.
Most of the time I hand polish my agates on lapidary diamond wheels, but when the design is curvy like this butterfly pendant, it’s impossible to get to the tight edges. Vibrating tumbling takes about 4-5 days to polish a pendant like this one. With agate, the outcome is always a beauty.
Just beautiful, I love it! Thanks 🙏
