Dendritic Agate Shadow Box Pendant with Orange Sapphire Drop In Sterling Silver
Beautiful scenic Dendritic Agate in black, clear and a hint of orange set in a 14k gold bezel in a sterling silver shadow box setting. The Dendritic Agate measures 18mm by 16mm. The 14k gold bezel is 3mm wide. The overall size of the pendant, including the faceted orange sapphire drop and the triple pendant loops at the top is 2" by 7/8" wide. The natural orange sapphire is set in a 14k gold bezel on a sterling silver back plate and measures 7 x 5mm. I've oxidized a sterling silver wheat chain to coordinate with the Dendritic Agate and it is 18" long although the pendant is available separately, if you wish.
Agates are a variety of Chalcedony which is a part of the Quartz family. These beautiful and picturesque inclusions are the result of iron oxide or manganese oxide. Manganese oxides result in the orange to red color and manganese oxide creates 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. It was associated with the ancient Greek dryads, which were woodland and tree spirits.
