Psilomelane in Quartz Pendant Wire Wrapped .925 Sterling Silver
Psilomelane in Quartz Pendant Wire Wrapped in .925 Sterling Silver Round Wire
A beautiful and fascinating intricately patterned stone - composed of spots and patches of feathery organically shaped metallic black plumes against a highly contrasting milky white quartz background. Providing unmatched versatility, it wears beautifully with practically any color, including black and earth tones. Mostly an artistic stone due to color variability color and pattern, and natural small open cavities; some purist qualities, however, include a highly polished flat surface, and a well-balanced wedge shape.
