Back in time, a serpentine natural stone is worn to protect against snake bites. Nowadays this green specimen is not as popular for that purpose, however, it still makes an eye-catching jewelry piece. It is also known as a stone that can turn negative energies into positive ones. This stone was collected in the Canadian Rocky mountains, cut to a teardrop shape, and polished on lapidary diamond wheels to a bright shine. Set with a sterling silver 21 gauge triple lined round and half round jewelry wire wrapping, a minimalist style method, that allows showing the entire size of the stone, yet holds it firm and safe in place. Hangs on a 20″ x 1.5 mm silver plated snake chain necklace.
