15% Off - Red Aventurine Pendant Wire Wrapped .925 Sterling Silver
An enlivening stone composed of red muscovite (alurgite) mica suspended in clear translucent quartz background. Makes a refreshing combination with most light and medium colors, especially green and purple, and wears quite well with many darker colors. Not the best choice, however, for some dark pink or mauve clothing as it tends to blend into similar colors. It wears well with most earth tone clothing; faded maroon or rust might be exceptions, as it also tends to blend or clash. This particular stone is dominated by abundant sparkling muscovite flakes; but with this abundance, surface pitting is also quite prevalent. A typical moderately pitted and random sparkling to flashy surface, give this stone artistic and some naturalistic appeal. A well rounded nearly oval shape and low dome, relatively flat front surface may also find some appeal to a purist view.
