Chrysocolla Druzy in Velvet Malachite Sterling Silver Pendant
One of the most breathtakingly beautiful gemstones I've ever seen is actually a naturally made mixture of stones. Bright blue Chrysocolla druzy in a velvet 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 droplets have been soldered beneath the stone. Suspended from a 19" beaded sterling silver 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 2 5/8" tall and 3/4" wide.
