Indonesian Agate Druzy Pendant


This agate druzy is found in Indonesia. The entire surface sparkles with unbelievable light, and it's polished on the back side. It was cut by Nate Sills in Bangkok (a source for many of my stones). I've border-wrapped it in 21 gauge sterling silver square wire and added my signature topper. A sturdy hidden bail will accommodate most chains.

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

The pendant measures 1 7/8" from top of bail and is 7/8" wide.

Note: Agate is a form of chalcedony, often banded, that comes in an amazing variety of colors. It forms by filling a cavity in a host rock. Agates are found throughout much of the world; the most famous mining of the mineral in Germany’s Nahe Valley. A number of stones are found in Indonesia, however, this source is rapidly drying up and soon exports will not be allowed.

In ancient times, agate was highly valued as a talisman 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!

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. 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.
