Druzy Quartz Chalcedony Freeform Pendant Wire Wrapped .925 Sterling Silver
Druzy Quartz Chalcedony Freeform Pendant Wire Wrapped in .925 Sterling Silver Round Wire
An elegant variety of freeform chalcedony featuring a natural fine druzy quartz crystal surface, this intriguing stone features a fascinating shape and contour in sparkling ice white to light gray-white, similar in appearance to a natural snow encrusted ice flow. A very light dependent stone, it is best worn under sunlight, spotlight, or other bright light or light in darkness contrast conditions. Under ambient or low light conditions, the surface has an appearance similar to velvet and the sparkling surface flashes are much diminished, or often not seen at all. Very versatile and wears well with almost any color and hue (light, medium, dark, bright, or earthy), but probably better with gray and blue tone colors than brown to yellow or gold tones. Druzy stones find appeal among purist, artistic, and naturalistic views alike.

Comment: Haven’t seen this stone before? Freeform druzy chalcedony such as this is usually found as one or a few pieces in random places; so gathering and sorting them becomes too labor intensive to be worth any large commercial endeavor. We get these stones from such random sources. When choosing druzy; medium to coarse druzy presents larger but fewer sparkling flashes which is best for wearing in casual settings of ambient, overcast, or general medium to low light conditions, Fine druzy wears best in bright light, spotlight, and under light at night contrast conditions where the smaller but much more abundant surface sparkle can be better seen. Bright sun and semi-formal to formal elegant night life environments reveal this stone’s beauty best. This is a fine druzy piece, 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.
