This handmade, sterling silver pendant is made with a natural stone cabochon. This beautiful sparkly druzy stone is a rare cobalto calcite from the Congo. It is not abundant and was only recently discovered. Not much is making it out of the war torn areas in which it is found. My understanding is that it isn't even being collected right now. The pictures are accurate. This is a very vibrant, high grade stone. This color is all natural and very sought after. If the color isn't enough the front is completely covered with fine sparkly druzy.
I made this wire wrapped setting with heavy sterling silver wire- not plated, filled or coated wire. For this special stone I added a wide, flat fancy wire to hold it securely. It is a highly polished sterling silver wire which adds a lot to the overall visual appeal of the pendant. I added a sterling silver bail to stay with the Modern style of the pendant.
