This beautiful, handcrafted pendant features a large quartz crystal, lovingly wrapped in rich coils and weaves of Sterling silver wire with sparkling Herkimer diamonds, set in stacked Sterling silver bead caps. The wire was oxidized naturally with egg yolk, polished, then sealed with clear lacquer to resist tarnish and preserve the aged finish of the piece over time. The entire pendant measures 53x30x22mm (2.1" x 1.2" x 0.9") and comes suspended on your choice of Sterling silver chain. This pendant is one-of-a-kind so there won't ever be another like it.
Herkimer diamonds are double-terminated (pointy at both ends) quartz crystal found in exposed outcrops of dolostone in and around Herkimer County, New York and the Mohawk River Valley. While such double-terminated crystals may also be found in other parts of the world, crystals originating in New York are known for their extreme clarity.
