Agate (Polka Dot) Pendant
Ladies agate pendant featuring a highly polished and finely cut cabochon mounted in a hand crafted sterling silver setting.
We believe this stone to be Polka Dot Agate but because it lacks the distinctive spots that are a characteristic of the Polka Dot variety, we're not entirely certain. Having said that it has the right colours and it's not unusual for Polka Dot Agate to exhibit black dendritic inclusions.
Dendrites are crystal formations caused primarily by impurities of iron and manganese which exhibit a branching form hence often resemble trees, plants and other organic matter. Although Dendritic Agate is best known for its dendritic inclusions, many rocks and minerals have them and it's not uncommon for them to sometimes be mistaken for fossils.
This finely cut light weight agate pendant has been crafted by hand exclusively for Stone Mania and it's a gemstone that certainly won't go unnoticed.
