Raw Mordenite Crystal Pendant Wire Wrapped .925 Sterling Silver
Raw Mordenite Crystal Pendant Wire Wrapped in .925 Sterling Silver Round Wire
A fascinating mineral crystal complex composed of fine compact radial fibrous mordenite crystals with pearlescent heulandite crystal accents bottom front and back. Mordenite is a zeolite mineral similar in structure to larimar (blue pectolite), and also to another more familiar zeolite mineral, scolecite (cream or white), but color variation of this particular crystal stone is white or light pink to rich coral-orange. Mordenite is quite versatile, especially complimenting blue, black, brown, beige/tan, cream, and white colored clothing, and wears quite well with yellow and green. It is attractive against most light pastel and dark colored backgrounds, but some caution should be taken with some medium and earth tone pink and orange colors, as it may blend into them. A non-standard angular organic shape and contour, inconsistent color variation, and an open cavity in front surface make this stone more appealing to an artistic or naturalistic view.

Comment: Haven’t seen this mineral crystal before? Some stones and crystals aren’t abundant enough to be produced commercially. They may only be found as one or a few in random places; at very small, unique sources; or under conditions where excessive sorting through a large amount of unattractive material becomes too labor intensive to be worth any large commercial endeavor. This mineral crystal complex is of one of these classes. A unique, handmade, genuine mineral crystal pendant, this piece is posted individually, not merely a representative item - what you see is what you get.
