This is a one of a kind piece -- you will receive the item in the photos.
I call this a Portrait Pendant because while this is a natural stone the formations look like little paintings.. These Agates are usually colorless, white, or gray, and have often tree- or fern-like inclusions of iron or manganese, called dendrites.
The dendrite, or dendritic 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 with .925 9mm bar chain. "Rustic" finish -- oxidized, sanded, not burnished. Closes with .925 Sterling Silver Lobster Clasp.
Dendritic Agate is known as the Stone of Plentitude. It brings abundance and fullness to all areas of life, from business to agricultural endeavors. It was associated with the ancient Greek dryads, woodland and tree spirits, and was buried in the fields at the time of sowing to ensure a good harvest.
Thanks for visiting my hand crafted jewelry collection.
