Vesuvianite Druzy Ring
This ring features a druzy of vesuviante, also known as idocrase, which came from Quebec. It's trapped between swirls of sterling silver wire in two different textures. I kept the silver bright on this ring, but it can also be oxidized if preferred. This spring, green druzy measures about 12mm x 22mm. This ring is a size 6. It is not possible to resize this ring, but I do have more vesuviante stones to make another ring in any custom size. Convo me for more information.
This fascinating mineral was originally found on the volcano, Mt Vesuvius in Italy, hence one of the names. The other name, idocrase, is from the greek and means mixed form, an allusion to its crystals showing a mixture of other mineral forms. Vesuvianite's tetragonal crystal formation is uncommon and quite beautiful.
Vesuvianite encourages enthusiasm for life and imparts the courage to change. It's also said to release negative attachments and hidden fears. Crystal healers use vesuvianite to strengthen tooth enamel and to restore the sense of smell. It also assists in assimilating nutrients from food.
