Scalloped Chalcedony Necklace

0.00

A stunning piece of Chalcedony Quartz with inclusions mimicking an underwater ocean scene or even a garden or landscape rests within a fine silver scalloped bezel, atop a solid sterling silver backplate with a hand-stamped scalloped border. A cut out has been hand-sawn through the back to allow light to pass through. My maker's mark and .925 are included on the back. The necklace hangs a little over 9 inches in total length, with the pendant measuring approximately 2 inches wide. It has been given a black patina and then sanded to a soft, satin finish. 

Chalcedony is a catch all term that includes many well known varieties of cryptocrystalline quartz gemstones. Because of its abundance, durability, and beauty, chalcedony was one of the earliest raw material used by humankind. The earliest recorded use of chalcedony was for projectile points, knives, tools, and containers such as cups and bowls. Chalcedony occurs in a wide range of colors. It is commonly gray, white, brown, red, yellow, orange and black, but it can occur in any color. It can also be banded or have plume, dendritic, mottled, mossy or other colorful structures within.
