Serpentine in Stichtite Teardrop Cab


This gemstone is serpentine in stichtite, the purple being the stichtite and the dark green being the serpentine. The two are often found together and may go under the name Atlantisite, particularly when the stones are mottled with the green serpentine and the purple or lavendar stichtite. A third combination, when mixed with quartz, is called "Peace Jade", but that's another story. I've wrapped this domed teardrop stone (a bead, actually, with the bead hole cleverly hidden under the fancy topper) 21 gauge square sterling silver wire. I hope you like it.

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

The pendant measures 2 1/2" from bottom of stone to top of bail and is 1 1/4" wide.

Note: Serpentine gets its name from the somewhat mottled and scaly appearance. Stichite is a hydrated magnesium chromium carbonate material, pinkish purple, not unlike the lighter shades of sugilite. It often occurs with serpentine and its most abundant location is near Dundas on the island of Tasmania.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
