A cute Capricorn birthstone, natural dark blue blue mineral pendant, Vivianite, with sterling silver wire wrap setting and with a silver plated necklace. The stone is an Australian specimen, with green yellow pattern. I don’t know who, when and why classified stones associated with birth months, I just researched it. Time to time we getting a few slabs from our trading partner, from down under, and most of the pendants we cut out of it, goes to women, who’s name is Vivian.
This pendant is a lovely little piece, but a little downside comes with it too, Vivianite has a high iron oxidation, and if it’s exposed to direct sunlight for longer period of time, it turns to very dark blue, and looses its shine.
stone size: 36.3 x 16.3 x 4.4 mm 18.80 ct.
overall pendant size including setting: 47.6 mm
Our gemstone pendants cut from mostly self collected natural semi precious crystals and minerals. Local Canadian Rocky mountain gems from far up the arctic circle to the south point of Vancouver island. We also buy and trade interesting specimen with worldwide partners. The handmade jewelry, what you find in the store, available to purchase. Some stones are drilled and set with findings, but our preferred method is the modern and minimalist style wire wrapping, what focuses to show the entire size of the stone, yet holds it firm and secure in place.
We never die, color or alter our stones in any ways, all pendant are 100% natural stones, polished with a nine step lapidary process. The settings made of sterling silver jewelry wire.
We have a large collection of jewelry quality raw minerals, ready to cut. Custom shape and size cutting available.
Sorry we do not sell raw stone, we use it or only trade it.
