This handmade, wire wrapped, sterling silver pendant is made with a gorgeous Mexican Crazy Lace agate. The stone has a gray and pink pattern. What's really cool are the pink bubbles under clear agate. They are not huge, but once you see them, you can't unsee them. I love this cab and almost kept it for myself.
I made the setting with solid sterling silver- not filled, coated or plated. It's simple, sturdy and will hold up well without covering up any of the pattern- which is how I like it. I love the rocks too much to cover them up.

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.
