A bumble bee hovers happily over a field of flowers forever captured in this natural dendritic agate stone.
Hand fabricated sterling silver and 22 karat gold keum-boo bumble bee, bezel set dendritic agate and sterling silver foxtail style chain accented with a tiny sterling flower.
Dendrites (Greek for plant-like) are inclusions that appear organic due to their plant like structure. Trace amounts of manganese and iron in solution from neighboring rock gain access to forming agate. The elements, after seeping thru fine surface fractures, crystallize inside the agate in branching fractal patterns creating these natural, rare gemstones.
pendant measures: 1 inches x 1 inch
Chain can be worn at any length between 16 and 18 inches.
