Asymmetrical Scalloped Necklace

0.00

Handmade entirely of sterling and fine silver.

Imperial Jasper and Prehnite set within scalloped bezels on a solid sterling backplate. My maker’s mark and .925 are stamped to the back for authenticity. All jump rings are soldered closed for durability. The pendant is meant to hang to the side and is strung on a 9” oxidized chain. It was given a black patina and a final polish to bring out the details.

ABOUT THE STONES:

Imperial Jasper is said to be one of the five fine Jaspers, with the Jasper occurring in veins. It is found in the steep canyons 50 miles northwest of Guadalajara, Mexico. The deposits are rich and concentrated, with almost 100 tons being mined over the past 10 years. This Jasper is known for having a large percentage of the "egg" pattern associated with this stone, like the one in this ring. This "egg" forms during the formation of the jasper, as opposed to the formation of the host rock. What makes this deposit so unusual and highly collectible is that it is the finest and largest deposit with egg patterning known in the world.

Prehnite was named after its discoverer: Colonel Hendrik von Prehn and is an attractive collection mineral exhibiting a pale green color. It has been claimed that Prehnite was the first mineral named after a person. It was first described in 1788 after it was discovered in South Africa. It is considered a very protective stone and a stone of prophesy. Prehnite is also considered a rare collector’s gemstone.
