Maury Mountain Agate Designer Cab Pendant

red-line.gif


A lovely elongated teardrop of Maury Mountain, a form of moss agate found in the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests. Characterized by its green and red coloring and now quite scarce except for rockhounds willing to dig for it. This stone has a high polish on its rounded dome. I've wrapped it in 21 gauge sterling silver with a simple swirled topper with "claws."

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

The pendant measures 2 1/4" from top of bail and is just under 7/8" wide at its widest point.

Note: Moss agate (also called mocha stone) is a semi-precious gemstone formed from silicon dioxide. It is a form of agate which includes minerals of a green color embedded in the chalcedony, forming filaments and other patterns suggestive of moss. It is usually formed from volcanic rocks and occurs in many locations. The colors are formed due to trace amounts of metal. Agate was highly valued as a talisman in ancient times and is said to quench thirst and protect from fevers. Ancient Persians used agates to divert storms. Some use agate to achieve success in international trade!

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
