African Bloodstone Designer Necklace

red-line.gif


This African Bloodstone necklace is made using a gorgeous bead set. Unfortunately, the fantastic coloring doesn't show up well under the light in which the photo was taken. Please check the closeup for better color and detail--a mottled grey-green with splashes of deep blood red. This necklace would make an outstanding gift for a March birthday girl as it's the traditional March birthstone.

The necklace is 22 inches long.

Note: African Bloodstone, sometimes called Seftonite, is a green jasper dotted with bright red spots of iron oxide. It was treasured in ancient times and served for a long time as the birthstone for March. This attractive chalcedony quartz is also known as heliotrope because in ancient times polished stones were described as reflecting the sun: perhaps the appearance of the gem reminded the ancients of the red setting sun, mirrored in the ocean.
