A custom carved setting surrounds this beautiful specimen of Merlinite.
Measuring 38x15mm (1.5x1 inches), the stone displays sparkly clear quartz, milky blue-white chalcedony, black dendritic inclusions, and black Psilomelane. Other names for Merlinite are Dendritic Agate or Dendritic Opal.
I crafted the setting out of Art Clay Silver. A fancy Sterling pronged bezel grips the stone securely. The back has an intricate pattern of Celtic knots, vines, and leaves. A graceful arabesque cutout allows light to shine through the stone and bring an inner glow to its translucent areas.
Pendant measures a total of 45x32mm (1.75x1.25 inches)
A 17.5 inch sterling wheat chain loops through the two rings of the pendant.
The bezel and chain are .925 Sterling silver; the rest of the pendant is .999 Pure Silver. All parts have been antiqued with Liver of Sulfur to bring out their intricate details.
