Dendritic Quartz Herkimer Diamond Necklace
This necklace displays dendritic quartz at its best. This high quality, oval, cut gem is a variety of quartz which is valued for its inclusions. Quartz is host to maganese, which crystalizes inside the stone much like ice or frost does on a window. It creates branch, like patterns with gradients of color that are unique to each stone. This unique beauty sits in a prong setting of sterling silver. Accenting the top of the stone is a Herkimer diamond bead. The pendant measures 16mm in width and 30mm in length, which includes the silver bail. The pendant slides around an oxidized, sterling silver, round, box chain with a length of 16" adjustable up to 18". More Herkimer diamond beads accent the end of the extension chain.
