This beautifully crafted sterling silver pendant showcases a unique dendritic agate gemstone that is the colour of buttermilk with jet black inclusions. The stone is translucent with the triangular shaped inclusions rising from deep within like mountains appearing in the morning mist.
Circa 1970, the pendant is an elegant teardrop shape with a scrolled top and an acid etched black border framing the stone. A design very much in the Art Nouveau style that enjoyed a revival in the 1970s. A tall slender oval bale decorates the top, the pendant suspends from a quality sterling silver curb chain but the bale is roomy enough for you to wear it on a variety of different chains if you wanted to vary the look.
A wonderful and unique gift from nature that is bound to bring interest and spirituality to your layering. In folklore dendritic agate is known as the "Stone of Plentitude" so what better gemstone is there to attract fullness in all things!
