Vesuvianite Crystal Druzy Silver Wrap Pendant

$ 75.00
This piece features an extraordinary specimen of vesuvianite. Also known as Idocrase, 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. This particular cluster of vesuvianite crystals came from Quebec. Vesuvianite has gone up a lot in price lately. It's becoming scarce now, but thankfully I have a lot of it that I've hoarded over the years. It's one of my favorite minerals, so I find it hard to part with sometimes. This rare mineral is decoratively wrapped with sterling silver wire with diamond cut, faceting to create a touch of sparkle. This vesuvianite pendant has a width of 18mm and a length of 31mm, which includes the silver bail. In this listing you may choose to purchase the pendant only or add the chain shown in the pictures. This is a sterling silver, twisted, foxtail chain that measures 16" adjustable up to 18". A bead of peridot and quartz accents the end of the extension chain. 

Metaphysical Properties:
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.
