Orange Calcite Pendant

 

 

A curiously tactile orange calcite cabochon crafted as a ladies pendant in fine sterling silver.  Being translucent means the crystal lattice can be clearly seen when the stone is held up towards the light.
    
Calcite one of the most common minerals on Earth forms many rock types including limestone, marble and travertine.  Widely used in Ancient Egypt calcite was at that time referred to as alabaster and was used in everything from buildings to vases.  The Sphinx of Memphis is the largest statue crafted from calcite ever to have been discovered.

Despite being readily available orange calcite is still an incredibly popular lapidary material and tends to be polished as a cabochon.  This hand crafted ladies pendant has been included in our collection of jewellery on sale in the Bargain Basement because the bale and ring to which it's attached at the top of the pendant is very slightly off centre although you'll need to have an eye for detail to notice it.
