Aventurine Pendant Wire Wrapped 14K Gold Filled

  • 3800

This exciting stone provides a myriad of sparkling flashes from tiny micas flakes within a dark green background stone. Best worn with medium to light shades of green, blue, purple, and red; and probably better with brown than black, some darker hues, especially red toned colors, make an elegant combination; but most other darker colors, especially green, should be avoided. Earth tone colored clothing is not the best choice for this stone either. This stone is also very light dependent and best worn under sunlight, spotlight, or other bright light conditions. Under ambient or low light conditions, the sparkling flashes within are often not seen at all.

Stone Size: Large (7/8” x 5/8” x 5/16”).

Pattern: sparkling mica in a dark green background.

Contour: Smooth, angled flat face.

Unique Features: Natural and typical near microscopic pitting, internal fracture on left side (common in Aventurine)

Polish: High, quite brilliant.

Edges: Smooth.

Comment: Aventurine is a type of quartzite, a metamorphic stone often containing multiple internal fractures, this stone has an internal fracture on the left front side (right side in the picture). It can only be seen when viewed from a particular angle. While it does not affect the structural integrity, it does affect the appearance somewhat and is difficult to capture completely in a photograph. A unique, handmade, genuine semi-precious stone pendant, this piece is posted individually, not merely a representative item - what you see is what you get.
