By the first look, this fool’s gold necklace really could be mistaken for real gold. Just as bright and just about the same color. I don’t think the name needs much explanation, nor the story behind it, how the old timer gold diggers paid the high price to learn a precious lesson. The stone is a combination of black Steatite and golden Pyrite, known also by the name as healers gold or Apache gold.
It’s a locally prospected specimen from the Canadian rocky mountains, cut and designed to shape in our shop. The setting is a modern style sterling silver 21 gauge triple lined round and half round jewelry wire wrapping, that allows the stone’s entire size shown. It comes with a 20″ x 1.5 mm silver plated snake chain necklace. The stone polished on diamond wheels up to 50.000 grit smoothness.
Apache gold pendant is known to turn negative energies into positive ones. Also known as a stone to connect us to the earth’s magnetic field, and makes us feel more comfortable with our confidence, helps to act on impulses.
