Rare Alunite Pendant Red and White Natural Stone Cabochon Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped

This handmade, sterling silver pendant is made with a natural stone cabochon. This rare stone from Arizona is off white with streamers and tendrils in shades of red. I love the contrast in this material. The best material was that which was mined in Quartzite. It had the nice red and white patterns. There is some is still being found but is not of the same original high quality. This stone is from the early 90's when it was first found in Quartzite.

I made this wire wrapped pendant setting with heavy sterling silver. As with all of my wire wrapped silver jewelry, the wire is not plated, filled or coated, but solid sterling silver. The flame shape of this cabochon is a perfect compliment to the pattern in the stone and the wrap is deceptively minimal with one hardened wire echoing the curves in the cut.
