Green Tourmaline Quartz Chunk Necklace
This necklace features a rough piece of white quartz, host to green tourmaline crystals. This precious specimen measures 18mm in width and has a length of 33mm, which includes the silver bail. The stone is wrapped with a sterling silver wire with a twisted texture. The metal was then oxidized to bring out its rope like texture. The pendant slides around an oxidized, sterling silver, foxtail chain with a length of 16" adjustable up to 18". More tourmaline accents the end of the extension chain.
The “purest” of all quartzes, crystals are used more frequently today for healing and diagnosis than any other stone. In ancient times healers used them to render negative energy impotent and to diagnose the origin of disease. Because quartz transmits heat it is cool to touch and crystal was originally believed (by the Greeks) to have been ice that had lost its ability to melt.
Also known as Verdelite, green tourmaline brings a joy for life. It promotes an appreciation for the many wonders that life has to offer. It encourages patience and openess, as well as sincere interest in fellow human beings. It has a masculine energy and connects us to the plant kingdom. It also inspires creativity, attracts success, prosperity and abundance and it has been used for weight loss.
