This stunning multi strand gemstone necklace features a focal piece purchased from the amazing lapidary artist, Gary Wilson. If you are familiar with him, you know that the incredible quality of his work and the unusual specimens that he offers are unmatched . He explained to me that it is a "Limonite Pseudomorph After Marcasite". Can I explain the process to you? Not at all. I can tell you, however, that it is one of my favorite finds from Gary, and I have many!

The stone has a deep, dark chocolate color with an interesting linear texture running along the lengths of the crystals. I have combined it with two strands of highly polished citrine nuggets along, one strand of opaque jasper and a strand filled with a variety of beautiful glass beads. The flashes of golden yellow in the citrine nuggets evoke the colors of the warm desert sun. The intriguing veining in the jasper stones provides a perfect contrast to the translucency of the glowing golden citrine. The various shapes, sizes and colors of the glass beads meandering throughout the gemstone strands add an unexpected element of surprise, similar to the small plants, rocks and fauna one would discover walking along a desert pathway. The combination of the various textures and colors is a visual treat! The 20 1/2" long necklace closes with a handmade clasp which fastens into a botanical leaf, which carries the organic feeling throughout.

Here is the official definition of a Pseudomorph; a mineral that has the crystalline form of another mineral rather than the form normally characteristic of it's own composition.

This necklace will ship fully insured.
