This handmade pendant and earrings stone jewelry set features wonderful Graveyard Point plume agates, from the Owyhee Mountains of Oregon, filled with wonderful darker plumes against a clear to white agate. (Please ignore any yellow cast. That is my camera having fits.) These stones have been tumble polished by me after I carefully selected and shaped them by hand into the flame shape you see. Tumbling polishes beautifully! These are flat and NOT cabs with a rounded top. These require as much work as cabbing, though. The pendant stone has some druzy in the front that isn't evident in the pictures but is there. The twinkle can be seen in person. I chose a thin material to work with to keep these light and translucent.
I used heavy sterling silver wire (not filled, coated or plated) This is an incredible set. The earrings are comfortable at only 5 grams each including the silver and handmade earwires. I added antiqued sterling silver fluted beads.

More about Agate:
Agate is a semi precious microcrystalline type of silica, a banded chalcedony, which is a member of the quartz family. Agates are finely grained, can contain bright colors and have a Moh's hardness of 6.5 to 7, which is very hard. Because of the hardness, agate takes a fabulous polish and is extremely durable for carved items. It has been a popular material for carving since ancient times. There are many types of agates. It is an avidly collected stone and is less common than a lot of other types of stones. It is very popular in jewelry.
Agate is a protective stone and attracts strength. It helps achieve balanced energy.
