Raw Amethyst Stalactite Slice Prong Set Statement Necklace
This unique one of a kind statement necklace was handmade with a stunning raw stalactite slice and solid sterling silver. 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. This stone is truly such a beautiful look at the way these stones are formed and I love all of the different markings and colors! It's a neutral tone overall but has really beautiful pops of color and the raw crystals around the rim are so glittery! I wanted to offer this unique stone protection as well as make sure to highlight as much of it as possible. I decided to saw out a heavy silver backplate for it that would be a few mm larger all of the way around the stone. I gave the whole piece of silver a texture with my cross peen hammer to reflect the light nickel and add dimension. Then I created prongs to hold the stone in place. Making a prong setting works well for this because it leaves that sparkly outer rim to shine! Truly a one of a kind piece. This is ready to ship!
