Unusual solar quartz with a filigree elephant pendant.
Warning: Last items in stock!
For this necklace, I chose a large, filigree type elephant charm. The animal is depicted with the trunk up, believed by many to bring good luck. In many cultures, the elephant has long been a symbol of strength, power, virility, longevity, fidelity, dignity, intelligence and wisdom.
To pair up with the elephant charm, I chose a special gemstone, a solar quartz.
Solar Quartz is the natural, colourless variety of the Quartz family formed in limestone caves as stalactites. The features within the stones are from elements in the surrounding ground when the crystal quartz is forming as a Stalactite so depending on the specific mineral the colors can differ. The stones can be transparent to opaque in quality and have a vitreous luster. Solar Quartz is mined in Brazil, Madagascar, India, Mozambique, Namibia, Sri Lanka, and the United States.
Next to the Solar Quartz drop, I attached a shiny Garnet, a gorgeous faceted Moss Aquamarine and a golden yellow faceted Citrine drop.
The pendant dangles from a 50cm trace chain which closes with a lobster claw clasp and has another Garnet attached next to the clasp.
The elephant measures about 4cm wide, 3cm high. The Solar Quartz is 18mm long.
All metal is antiqued brass/bronze finished.
