When I saw this cute drusy cabochon for sale here on Etsy, it was displayed with the point up. But the stone was telling me something else completely. So I bought it, turned it upside down and wrapped it in the heart shape you see here. I call it the "Hole in my heart" pendant.

This is one of those pieces that really needed gold wire. The 14k gold filled wire brings out the beautiful dusty rose color in the stone. The drusy is so glittery and changes as you move the piece from side to side.

The Greeks called quartz Ice of Eternity, and many ancient cultures considered quartz crystals to be some kind of petrified ice. Some even said that holding a piece in the mouth could quench one’s thirst. The Romans used clear quartz as a healing stone. Shaped into a bead, it was used to reduce glandular swellings and fevers. Crystal gazing has long been a means of divination in a variety of cultures. It is also thought to increase psychic ability. Ancient clerics would “draw down the fires of heaven” with assistance of clear quartz. Magnifying the rays of the sun through a piece of quartz, they would light the ceremonial flames. Pliny recommended the use of a ball of quartz crystal for the cauterization of wounds via this age-old method. It is one of the seven precious substances in Buddhism.

Quartz has always been a favorite stone for communication with the spirit world. Native American Medicine men used quartz as divining and hunting charms. The stones were inhabited by spirits which were periodically fed by rubbing them with deer’s blood. Mexican natives believed the spirits of quartz were the souls of the dead.

The pendant measures a about 2" from the top of the bail to the bottom wrap and is about 1 1/4" across at the widest point.
