Azurite in Malachite Sterling Silver Pendant
This stone is another stunner that is actually a naturally made mixture of stones. Like a stream, cobalt blue azurite meanders thru green malachite and cuprite. The presence of copper in all 3 of these stones is responsible for all of the magnificent blues and greens that are a Verdilune hallmark.
Set in sterling silver serrated bezel soldered to 20 gauge sterling silver sheet. Tiny silver hammered droplets have been soldered to each side of the stone. Suspended from a 19" sterling silver 1.9mm rolo chain, finished with a lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized (darkened) in liver of sulphur, and then polished to bring out highlights.
This pendant measures 1 3/8" tall and 1" wide.
