This cute silver set green stone isan Arizona Chrysocolla pendant, cut from a large boulder, is what we bought directly from the quarry. A very interesting green copper mineral, with some blue in it, that is blended with Chalcedony, and in this form became a translucent crystal, which shows beauty when light is held behind. The shape of the pendant is designed to display a bit of the host rock, red-brown Cuprite, which characterizes the nature of this silver set green stone, Chrysocolla.
High polished to a bright shine and glass-like smoothness on lapidary diamond wheels up to 50.000 grit. No chemicals or harmful materials are used during the process only water for cooling. Drilled with a 1 mm hole on top, and set with sterling silver 21 gauge round jewelry wire created a twist cap and joined hanger. The wire runs through the drilled hole, the stone never gets loose or lost.
Silver plated 20″ x 1.5 mm snake chain necklace is included in the listing price, however, if you have base metal allergies, we can supply a 2 mm thick black leather necklace instead of the chain.
stone size: 38.2 x 18.4 x 8.4 mm 39.50 ct. overall pendant height: 47.4 mm
Chrysocolla is one of our favorite minerals, we’re always on the look for new specimens.
