Sagenite Designer Cab Pendant

A pretty stone measuring 17 x 40 millimeters and with subtle, needle-like markings on a honey and crystal white background. I've border wrapped this gemstone using 22 gauge sterling silver wire with an open design top and the ends pulled through and curled around the top wires.

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

The pendant measures 2 3/8" from top of bail and is 3/4" wide.

Note: Sagenite, or more accurately, sagenitic agate is any agate having acicular or needle like mineral growths. These hair like filaments are often arranged in fans or sunbursts. The inclusions come in a wide array of colors. Most agates occur as nodules in ancient volcanic rocks or lava where cavities where filled by silicate and zeolitic minerals deposited in layers upon the walls of the cavity, with the first deposit forming the outer skin of the agate. When the deposition process does not proceed to the point of filling the cavity, a hollow space is left causing a geode (above, right). The interior of the geode can be encrusted with amethyst or quartz crystal. Banding found in Plume Agate, Sagenite, Thunderegg, and Tube Agate is caused by silicate (green) iron oxide or limonite (red), and is referred to as banded agate, riband agate or striped agate.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
