I call this an Portrait pendant because while this is a natural stone the formations in the agate look like little paintings ... These Agates are usually colorless, white, or gray, and have tree- or fern-like inclusions of iron or manganese, called dendrites.
You choose your stone from 5 available -- numbered in the last photo
The dentrite, or dentritic agate is hand set in bezel with minimally designed sterling silver accent around -- oxidized and left brushed -- soldered in my studio by hand by me. The strand is lovely -- TINY -- banded agate (1.5/2mm) -- available in multiple lengths. Finished in .925 Sterling Silver
Dendritic Agate is known as the Stone of Plentitude. It brings abundance and fullness to all areas of life, from business to agricultural endeavors. [Melody, 86][Hall, 43] It was associated with the ancient Greek dryads, woodland and tree spirits, and was buried in the fields at the time of sowing to insure a good harvest.
Thanks for visiting my hand crafted jewelry collection.
