Blue Chalcedony and Silver Pendant



The Chalcedony cabochon in this pendant has the most soothing quality, with its soft lavender blue color and the interesting band of light gray at the top. I set it on sterling silver and put a band of twisted silver wire around it. I added a few fine silver balls - one at the bottom and a few at the top, then antiqued and polished to show off the wire twists and the balls. The bail is hand cut and riveted.

Lapidary work on this beautiful calming cabochon is by Canadian lapidary artisst Juvy Andres of JC Cabochons.

SIZE:  Length is about 1 1/4 inches, and width at the bottom is about 5/8 inches. This pendant is sold without a chain. I offer a variety of chains and cords which can be purchased separately.

MATERIALS: Sterling silver, fine silver bezel, Chalcedony

PROPERTIES OF STONES (information compiled from various sources): Chalcedony is said to help promote good will to others. It is supposed to absorb negative energy and encourage feelings of generosity, as well as  helping to ease self-doubt. As well as having the general Chalcedony attributes, Blue Chalcedony is said to encourage mental flexibility, aid in learning new languages and help improve memory.
