Dimensions

Pendant height: 1.47 Inches; Pendant width: 0.28 Inches

This pendant combines two gems: a beautiful faceted green prehnite and a natural untreated green tourmaline. The prehnite measures 7.9 x 6.0 mm, and the tourmaline crystal measures 0.63 x 0.15 inches (16.1 x 3.9 mm). The pendant as a whole measures 1.47 inches (37.4 mm), and the stones together weigh in at 5 carats. It is set in sterling silver.

Prehnite is one of those gems which has traditionally been overlooked, but is finally getting some attention. It has a beautiful range of green and yellow colors, can be readily fashioned and has sufficient hardness for gem use (6-6.5). The main reason that it hadn't made the big times is that it is never perfectly clear--it is always at least a bit milky, meaning that it is almost always cut as cabochons or left as a mineral specimen. Some, however, have suffucient clarity that they yield a beautiful if slightly sleepy stone, and recently these have really taken off as a specialty gem. This stone is a great example, with a beautiful light green tone and great clarity. It has been cut as a oval with a checkerboard top, and measures 7.9 x 6.0 mm.

Tourmaline is a unique gem, in that it comes in just about any color imaginable. One of the more sought-after hues is a rich pink, which covers a range of tones unlike any other gem. While high quality pinks have been found in Maine, California, Brazil and other notable mines, Afghanistan has emerged as a great source of tourmalines of almost all colors.
This tourmaline shows the lighter colors typical of Afghan tourmaline, a range which is somewhat unusual for a gem whose colors are more often too dark. With a beautiful pale-green hue, it is a lovely example of this unique locale's material. The crystal measures 0.63 inches (1.61 cm).
