The design places the high domed 10mm X 12mm sugilite cabochon on center stage, surrounded by gracefully twisted silver wire, silver stars and the sensuous parts of a 1956 US silver quarter. The vivid green chrysoprase cabochon perfectly compliments the deep purple sugilite. The pendant measures approximately 2 inches from the top of the bail to the bottom of the pendant. The pendant is just under 3/4 of an inch in width. The bail will accommodate a strand of silver beads to 4mm in diameter. The pendant is artist signed (by me) and marked .925 on the reverse. The coin silver is .900 percent silver. The strand of silver beads is not included.
This gorgeous sugilite is the real gem, not purple jade or charoite which are inexpensive and often color dyed and misrepresented to be sugilite. I've worked with this gem for 30 years and the sugilite I use has been in my possession since the beginning. It is all natural and genuine African sugilite.
