The centerpiece pendant of this necklace contains a large round polished piece of Malachite and a smaller piece of Wyoming Turritella agate. Turritella agate is a brown, translucent fossil agate from the Green River Formation in south central Wyoming. It contains large freshwater fossil snails from an area that was land-locked, but under water and formed during the Eocene epoch. Malachite is a bright green copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, usually a very opaque green often with bands and swirls of darker greens. It often occurs with other copper minerals, such as Chrysocolla and Azurite. It can be found in the Congo, Mexico, the Urals of Russia, and Arizona. I set these two amazing stones in a sterling silver serrated bezel, backed with 24 gauge sterling silver sheet. The hanger is created with coiled sterling half round wire, with an opening large enough for Sarah to string the beads through. The beads repeat the colors of the green malachite and the browns of the Turritella, as well as pulling out a theme of shells and fossils. These beads include spheres of the Turritella agate, Malachite, silver leaf agate, green agate, cultured pearls, Swarovski crystal, and Czech glass coiled ammonites and various other shapes. There are multiple sterling silver spacer beads, and large sterling shell-shaped beads, which add additional sparkle to the necklace. The elaborate hook and loop style clasp is also sterling silver. This piece is 20 inches in length, and the pendant centerpiece measures 2 1/4 inches long by 1 5/8 inches wide. There are matching earrings available, which feature beads of Malachite, Turritella agate, Swarovski crystal, and sterling silver; and measure 1 1/4 inch in length. This is a stunning piece, and will be sure to be an eye catcher and a family favorite!
