Bulbous Chalcedony Gemstone Pendant
The reason for this blue chalcedony pendant being added to our collection of sale jewellery in the Bargain Basement is because there's a round mark on the back of the gemstone which we was caused by a sticky label that should never have been there in the first place. Despite all of our efforts to remove it with a non chemical solution, the mark remains but being on the back of the stone it's totally invisible whilst the pendant is being worn.
This bulbous shaped chalcedony pendant has a vitreous lustre and with the stone being translucent the shade of colour changes slightly depending on the amount of light that's present. Chalcedony quartz as this mineral is also sometimes known has crystals which are microscopic hence cannot be seen with the naked eye. Although white in its purest form the vast majority of chalcedony occurs with impurities of other minerals and it's these which cause a variety of different colours.
A popular gemstone for use in jewellery, chalcedony is relatively hard which makes it a fairly straightforward stone easy to work with.
Crafted by hand for Stone Mania in a fine sterling silver setting, this chunky pendant is a pretty piece of ladies jewellery at a totally unbeatable price.
