Chrysocolla Pendant (#271)
Chrysocolla cab finely wrapped in argentium sterling silver wire.
The pendant measures 1 7/8" long.
A little about Chrysocolla : Chrysocolla is a sharply colored mineral. Its color can be among the brightest shade of blue and green, and it is caused by its copper content. Chrysocolla is often coated by a layer of glossy clear quartz or intergrown together with quartz. Most Chrysocolla is from copper deposits in arid regions, though it is not at all limited to these regions and is found worldwide. This specific pendant of Chrysocolla was found in the Morenci Mine in Arizona USA.
A little about the wire used: Argentium sterling contains less copper than standard sterling silver. It was developed specifically to combat the tarnish that occurs as a result of oxidization and it is more hypo-allergenic than traditional sterling silver.
