An large carnelian gemstone bead pendant, with sterling silver wire work and plated copper chain. The stone has one-of-a-kind bands and patterns of red, black and white. The stone is a bead, meaning it has a hole drilled through it lengthwise, where it has been secure with silver wire. Carefully placed coils and spirals of wire accent and enhance the carnelian's natural beauty. The pendant is hung on a silver-plated copper chain and packaged in a hand-stamped gift box. This unique gemstone necklace is is a perfect choice for the woman who loves tasteful jewelry with a magical touch.
STONE: Carnelian is the light to dark red variety of the mineral chalcedony, which is generally colorless or light blue in its pure form. The red-orange color of carnelian is due to impurities, or micro-amounts of the element iron in its chemical structure. Metaphysically, carnelian is thought of as a creative stone, helping you translate emotions into creation. It is also believed to bring acceptance of the past and all of its challenges. This stone can be useful to help overcome creative blocks and learn to embrace all of yourself.
SIZE: 2 3/16 inches x 1 1/4 inches
CHAIN: The pendant is photographed on a silver plated snake chain, available in lengths of 16 or 20 inches. 16 inches is the default option, just add a "message to seller" at checkout if you prefer 20 inches. The silver plating on the chain will eventually wear off, but its a great affordable option. I also have a variety of styles of sterling silver chains available to enhance your pendant in the Chain Section starting at $15.
CLEANING: Silver will naturally darken, or tarnish, due to reactions with sulfides in the air. Each piece of Kosmic Krystals' silver jewelry comes with a non-tarnish strip and bag that prevents absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Carnelian is a hard stone, so it can be cleaned in a solution formulated to clean metals and nonporous gemstones, such as Hagerty Jewel Clean to keep your silver bright. Any dirt and debris can be easily removed with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.
