Description

Art Deco inspired round pendant measuring 1-1/4″ in diameter and will accept chains 1711, 1770 and 1781. We found this unique 18 mm Variscite cabochon on a trip to Taos, NM. It is a stone we had not seen at our local gem and mineral shows and we were intrigued by its light green color and black line pattern. Variscite is a hydrated aluminum phosphate mineral. It is a relatively rare phosphate mineral and is considered to be one of the rarer and lesser known collector’s gemstones available today. It is sometimes confused with turquoise. It is believed to be an excellent stone for relieving stress and anxiety. The cabochon is set in a 28 gauge .935 Argentium Sterling Silver bezel. The Art Deco design was etched into 20 gauge .935 Argentium Sterling Silver. The etched areas are a blackened patina. The bail which is on the back is also etched. For the wearer we have added a hand inscribed unique design on the back of this pendant.
