Pietersite Designer Cab Pendant

This gorgeous stone contains a high degree of chatoyancy and features not only golds but reds and blues. It is quite thick at 9mm so I've border wrapped it in six strands of sterling silver square wire and topped it with a series of frothy curls. There's a sturdy hidden bail in the back, large enough to accommodate almost any chain.

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 1 1/8" wide.

Note: Pietersite, named in honor of its discovery by Sid Pieters in 1962, contains fantastic veins and swirls of one rich color, intermingled with thrusts or spots of another color, sometimes even several others, contribute to its remarkable charm. Pietersite does not suffer from the monotonous regularity which many other minerals exhibit. Each and every sample is unique and different from any other. This amazing variety is the essence of its attraction. When you hold it in your palm, you will be dazzled by the richness of its colors. There are reds, which can range from scarlet all the way to deepest maroon. They might be mixed with blues, from peacock blue to deepest indigo. Sometimes, there are flashes, or blades, or purest gold, occasionally even strands of olive green. There can also be spots of white, or patches of clear, translucent material, which are visible when you hold it up to the light. All this combines in a symphony of nature's richest pigments. Pieters exclaimed on cutting open his finding, "Of all the gemstones I have seen in the world, this is one of the most beautiful."

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
