Pink Phosphosiderite Pendant, Silver with Flowers



This phosphosiderite cabochon is all about spring, romance and blooms. It is a soft pink, with a touch of mauve and delicate yellow veins.  I set it on a sterling silver back and soldered flat flowers above it. I then riveted slightly domed flowers to create a three dimensional look. The rivets are bronze; the flowers are fine silver. The back is darkened to help both the stone and flowers stand out. The bail is riveted; I added a flower on the bail rivet. Another flower is cut out behind the stone.

Lapidary artist is Debbie Stone.

SIZE: This pendant measures about 1 7/8 inches long and 1 inch wide. This pendant is sold without a chain. I offer a variety of chains and cords which can be purchased separately.  It is pictured here with a sterling wheat chain.

MATERIALS: Phosphosiderite, Sterling silver, Fine silver, Bronze

PROPERTIES OF STONES (information compiled from various sources): Phosphosiderite is said to be a natural stress reliever. It is supposed to contain a healing and calming vibration that boosts your overall being when touched.
