This stunning necklace began with some amazing genuine gemstone quality bronzite stones that Stacy hand picked strand by strand from the manufacturer. Stacy then strung all the gemstone on incredibly study stainless steel wire and completed the necklace with a silver toggle. While sourcing the bronzite, we were remembered a piece of india script stone we had hiding around in the shop! The piece was cut to a rectangular pendant that makes a perfect completion to this necklace! India script Stone is fossilized shell fragments and coral mixed with hematite and iron minerals within them. These stones formed over millions of years time into a stone. These stones come from the Himalayan mountains in India, hense the name! You can also occasionally find them under the name of calligraphy stone, or Miriam Stone. I Just enjoy looking at the interesting patterns in this stone. If you look closely at the stone you can imagine a grassy underwater kelp field or jungle scape. We can imagine mermaids swimming through the dense jungle of kelp. (OK maybe I'm sharing a bit too much of my inner thought here, but lets go with it!) So with that imagination in mind, Jack cut a sturdy piece of sterling silver, and bezel set the stone into the silver, with a decorative scalloped bezel wall and made into a pendant. The bail on the pendant moves laterally, to allow movement of the pendant, drawing attention to it. Jack took this amazing pendant, and added it to Stacy's creation, the single strand 5mm Bronzite gemstone necklace. Wow. What a stunning pair they make. (the necklace and pendant, but also Jack and Stacy!) The necklace measures 20 inches long, but then the India script pendant hangs another 1.5" so it wears like a 21.5" necklace. This necklace is a one of a kind and will not be replicated. A must have piece for your collection, or to give to someone special. The back of the pendant has a special little hidden surprise, to remind you of those mermaids! ►Metaphysical Properties: Bronzite is said to be a powerful stone for alleviating feelings of self-doubt. Some practitioners will sit quietly with the stone and let it encourage peaceful contemplation, even during stormy weather. When the mind is at peace, your self-confidence will flourish, leading you on a path to fulfilling your dreams. Wear this Bronzite around your neck to let it serve as a reminder of your commitment to letting go of self-criticism and self-doubt. After all, some of our greatest battles are fought within our own minds. India stone, itself doesnt have special properties, but they contain the metaphysical properties of Hematite. Hematite is said to be the ultimate grounding stone for the body. When it touches your skin, you should immediately feel more balanced, calm and centered. It eliminates the negative energy in your body. ►Handcrafted in our shop in the South End, Boston Massachusetts. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ordering is easy.
