Dendritic Agate Pendant in 14K Gold and Silver, Nature Jewelry, Gardeners Necklace, Scenic Pendant
One of a kind, gorgeous scenic Dendritic Agate (11mm square or about 1/2" square) set in a 14k gold bezel (that is 3mm wide), with a 14k gold wire border. I've soldered the bezel onto a sterling silver sheet and oxidized that backplate for a dramatic contrast with the stone. The accent stone dangling from the bottom edge is a faceted sphene (5mm by 3mm), which is an earthy greenish brown color that I thought brought out the subtle tones in the Dendritic Agate. In the listing photos, I'm showing it on a 14k gold, 18" 2mm round snake chain but it can also be purchased without a chain if you prefer to use your own, or with a lighter weight 14k gold link chain.
Agates are a variety of Chalcedony which is a part of the Quartz family. The inclusions are the result of iron oxide or manganese oxide. Iron oxides result in the orange to red color and manganese oxides create black designs. These feathery inclusions are called dendrites.
Agates are the mystical birthstone for September and are also the birthstone for the Zodiac sign of Gemini. The energies of the stone are said to be good for the skin and eyes. Dendritic Agate is known as the Stone of Plentitude. It is said to bring abundance and is associated with the ancient Greek dryads, which were woodland and tree spirits.
