The centerpiece pendant of this necklace contains a polished cabochon of Pietersite and a faceted smoky Quartz set in sterling silver. Pietersite is a variety of quartz composed of Tiger's Eye, Hawk's Eye and jasper, and is known for its chatoyancy, or cat's eye effect. It has hues of browns, grey, and deep blue-blacks. It is extremely rare and found in two locations in the world, Namibia, Africa and in Hunan, China (where flooding has stopped mining). Smoky quartz is a translucent grey-brown to almost black variety of quartz. It is found throughout the world, with major deposits in Brazil, Madagascar, Australia, Switzerland, Scotland, and Colorado. It was first described by Sid Pieters in 1962, in Namibia. I set this geometric shaped stone in a flat sterling silver bezel, as well as the faceted smoky quartz. The stones are backed in 24 gauge sterling sheet, and the hanger loop consists of coils of half round sterling with an opening for Sarah to string the beads through. The beads repeat the browns, yellows, and black-blues of the Pietersite, and the brown-grey of the smoky quartz, plus bronze and beige tones. These beads include various rectangles and spheres of Pietersite, smoky quartz leaves and faceted barrels, cultured pearls, Czech glass and Chinese glass. There are multiple sterling silver spacer beads, and larger rectangular sterling beads which add sparkle to the necklace. The elaborate hook and loop style clasp is also sterling silver. This necklace is 20 1/2 inches long, and the centerpiece measures 2 3/8 inches long, by 1 1/4 inches wide. This is a very elegant, warm-hued piece, with great chatoyancy and sparkle. It will be a real eye catcher, especially in the sunshine!
