You are viewing a pendant handmade in the wire wrapped jewelry style with a unique Marfa Plume agate. This agate comes from Texas and is noted for the black plumes in clear and or white agate. The contrast is very distinct and makes for some wonderful cabs. This is a small pendant but because of the pattern, it will be noticed. The black plumes are set in clear agate and surrounded by white agate.
I used solid sterling silver to set this natural stone simply and securely so as not to conflict with the stone.
stone ---- 33x21mm
pendant ---- 1.97" / 50mm long; .90" / 23mm wide
bail ---- 5.5mm This is small but will fit an appropriate chain.
This does not include a chain or cord.

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.
