The most stunning piece of variscite I've ever found, this stone was desitined to become waterlilies in a pond. Variscite is a conglomerate stone, made of two or more minerals that have been desposited together. This conglomerate is mezmerizing...the dark green ripple rings around the paler green lilies of the variscite paired with the buff conglomerate.
The stone is surrounded by a scalloped bezel that echoes the curves of the lilies. As an accent, and nod towards Monet's color palette, I have added a sparkling tanzanite, set in a sterling tube and flanked with silver spheres. Shown on a white background, as the traditional black background doesn't show the true color of the tanzanite. The backplate is textured, and the reverse has been left open so you can see the reverse of the stone.
This is a one of a kind piece. The pendant has an enhancer bail, a sterling clasp that snaps opens up to clip easily around a chain, omega, pearls, ribbon, cord, etc.
The pendant measures just about 2-1/2", including the snap-open bail. The pendant is signed on the back, and marked .925 sterling. It is shown paired with a 1.5mm wheat chain that I've oxidized.
