Eudialyte Oval Pendant

red-line.gif


The name Eudialyte (pronounced yudai’ yelait) originated from the Greek “Eu”, meaning well and “Dialytos” meaning decomposable. This 40 x 30mm oval cab has lots of deep magenta translucence and also shows deep black and green--a perfect combination. I've given this stone a simple border wrap and a single arching swirl at the top.

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

The pendant measures 2 1/2" from top of bail and is 1 1/8" wide.

Note: It's a rather rare mineral (actually composed of several minerals: sodium, calcium, cerium, iron, manganese, zirconium, silicon, hydrogen and chlorine) whose crystals are vitreous and translucent to transparent. Eudialyte is normally found embedded in host rock and only occasionally forms crystal faces. Because of this and the fact that it has only a hardness of 5 to 5.5 on the Mohs scale, it is rarely cut as a gemstone. Still, its distinct color of deep magenta, sometimes with green, black or brown, makes make it popular among mineral collectors.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
