9MM Heishi Strand Chrysocolla Necklace

Chrysocolla is a unique green-blue but can vary widely from more blue to more green, often in the same specimen. Luster is earthy to dull or vitreous and waxy. This 9MM heishi strand is so beautiful I left the beads without adornment except for tiny sterling balls near the heavy duty trigger clasp. Wear it with jeans, a gauze top, any v-neck top. Wear it all four seasons. Exquisitely chic for any occasion. For a closeup, go here.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The necklace is 18 1/2 inches long and can be made longer with an extender.

Note: Chrysocolla is a sky-blue to greenish blue and green color, often streaked with black. It is found in the oxidization zone of copper deposits and associated with azurite, malachite, cuprite, turquoise, and quartz (chalcedony mostly). Chrysocolla is considered an ore of copper when associated with other secondary copper minerals. It is found in Chile, Mexico, Russia, Africa, England, Italy, and in the U.S. in Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico. Its only value is as a semi-precious gemstone in jewelry. The high quality material is highly prized and sought after by jewelers and rough specimen collectors alike.

Enjoy wearing this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
