Vivid golden spikes shoot through this crystal clear quartz cabochon!

I have always been intrigued by rutilated quartz - it gets its unusual appearance from minerals embedded in the stone. The colors can be golden (as in this pendant), red (as in my Lightning in a Bottle pendant), silver and green.

This particular stone reminded me so much of sunbeams, and as I love to make sun and nature-inspired jewelry, I hand sawed pierce a piece of sterling silver sheet and set the stone in solid (not plated or filled) 14k yellow gold.

I strung the pendant onto a 16-inch sterling silver snake chain. If you would like another type or length of chain, please let me know.
