Moonstone Teardrop Pendant

This is another moonstone cab from a lot purchase. The designer shape lends itself beautifully to the border wrap. The one-inch high stone is thich and has a high polish on its domed surface. Also, there is a lot of fire in this particular stone. I wrapped it in six strands of 22 gauge sterling silver wire, then added a topper of swirls with tiny "claws" wrapped over the right shoulder. There are few visible striations in this stone.

The pendant is petite, measuring just 1 5/8" from top of bail and is just over 3/4" wide.

Note: Moonstone is a feldspar mineral, a potassium aluminum silicate with a Mohs hardness of 6 to 6.5. It was named after its blue-white sheen which is caused by its lamellar structure. Moonstones are found in Sri lanka, Madagascar, Myanmar, Australia, India and the United States. It is considered a stone of mystery, a gem of the high priestess.
