Dimensions

Pendant height: 2.97 Inches; Pendant width: 1.08 Inches

This pendant features a cabochon of Mexican psilomelane agate from the famed Crown of Silver mine. The stone measures 2.50 x 1.02 inches (63.5 x 25.9 mm) and is set in sterling silver.

Psilomelane is a very beautiful and unique gemstone. While "psilomelane" is technically a term for oxides of manganese, the gem form is actually an intergrowth of that metallic mineral with chalcedony, forming a banded, patterned and mirror-reflective stone. It is rather difficult to get across in photos, but the patterning is shown in bands of deep black and bright silver--and in some of the finer material, not only bands but also orbs are seen.

This stone is a very nice piece, with a mixture of complex banding and orbs, and an excellent luster. It is a perfect example of the gem, and shows some of the nicer patterning available. This patterning is very difficult to properly capture on a camera because of how mirror-reflective the surface of the stone is, but it is very obvious in person even in a low light setting.

This stone was cut for us by our friend Lenny Samuelson--like all the cabs he cuts it shows his strong attention to detail with great shaping and a perfect polish. You can see more of his work over at lennysrockshop.etsy.com
