A sterling silver hummingbird hovers over a field of flowers forever captured in a natural dendritic agate stone.
From a hand fabricated and carved sterling silver hummingbird hangs a bezel set dendritic agate stone. The piece is accented with 3 tourmalines and hangs from a sterling silver foxtail style chain.
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: 2 inches in length x 1.25 inches wide
The foxtail chain is 16 inches long and a lengthener can be added upon request.
