Stalactite Slice Necklace Hand Knotted Silk Necklace


A completely natural amethyst stalactite slice with an agate center is the focal point for this necklace. Stalactite slices of this caliber are rare to find, and do not confuse it with the electroplated stalactite slices that are saturated on the market currently. This is a natural and high quality specimen, which I have had set with an 18kt gold white topaz bezel. The stalactitess has a lovely light purple amethyst shade on the outer formation, and the agate center has a couple of layers of colors, including light brown and teal. To accent the colors in the stalactite, poolwater blue smooth polished apatite and Caribbean blue larimar rondelles, faceted beer quartz rondelles have been hand knotted on silk cord. Hand knotted silk necklaces provide the most lovely drape on one's neck, and feel lovely when worn. A single AAA faceted oval of pink amethyst accents the side of the necklace to highlight the outer rim of the stalactite slice. A one of a kind piece!

Amethyst stalactites are rare specimens found inside amethyst geodes. They are formed millions of years ago in hot lava as gas pockets. From there, fluid silica then penetrates inside, and together with a combination of iron particles, it creates the purple tone. When all the compositions cool off, it produces the quartz crystal inside. The geodes are then sliced and polished on both sides, which makes them perfect for creating into amazing and unique jewelry!

Can't you imagine a bewitching Sea Nymph wearing this necklace to lure unsuspecting mariners toward her? The colors are magical and the pendant is so mesmerizing!

Approximate measurements: 16"-18" in length. The stalactites measures 28x4mm
All metal used for pendant bale, clasp and extension chain is 14kt gold filled.

Is vermeil the same as "gold plate"?

Many people have misconceptions about vermeil, because they confuse it with "gold plate". However, they are vastly different! Vermeil must meet the FTC standard of 100 millionths of an inch (2 ½ microns) of fine gold layered over sterling silver. In order for a piece to be labeled legally as "vermeil", the item must not be less than 10 karat gold and have a substantial thickness, with a minimum thickness of 2 ½ microns. In contrast, "gold plating" is a miniscule layer of solid gold applied to a brass base. The plating does not compose any measurable proportion of the product’s total weight, and is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Gold plating will wear off rather quickly and expose the brass base product.

Is "Gold Filled" the same as "gold plated"?

No! Gold-filled is constructed in two or three layers. The core metal is jewelers’ brass. The gold alloy is then bonded to one or both surfaces of the brass core with heat and pressure. The bonded raw material is then sold as sheet or wire to jewelry manufacturers for use in designs. Gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is then described by the karatage of the gold alloy. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled. All of the gold-filled used in my designs is 14kt. It is a beautiful and affordable alternative to solid gold.

Care instructions

Artisan jewelry is not mass produced, and needs to be cared for properly. Please do not wear your jewelry to sleep, bathe, or swim in. A great rule of thumb is to accessorize with your jewelry last! Be sure to apply perfume and hair products before putting on your precious jewels. Vermeil and sterling silver jewelry will tarnish, so to help keep that to a minimum, please store your jewelry in the box provided when not worn. While gold fill jewelry does not tarnish in the same way, it is a good idea to also protect it in a box, to help prevent scratching or damaging of any wire wrapped pieces. To clean, you can use a mild jeweler's cleaner that is safe for gemstones and gold. Please do NOT dip pearls, opals, or any other porous stone.
