This bold statement necklace was handmade with solid sterling silver and a raw amethyst stalactite slice. Stalactites are formed at the roof of a cave and begin with just one drop of water. Over millions of years, many drops of water leave bands of calcite and over time they build together to create a stunning column of minerals. Imagine taking a cross section slice of such a formation, that is how these unique stalactite slices are made. This specific amethyst stalactite slice has a gorgeous agate stone core and is surrounded by glittering amethyst crystals still in their natural state. The slice is polished on both sides and makes such a stunning centerpiece in this pendant. I hand stamped and sawed out the organically shaped sterling silver back for the piece making this into a real statement piece. The chain has big hammered silver links and the lobster claw can fit into any of the links allowing this to be completely adjustable up to 20" in length.
