Bring the Sun into your life with this beautiful Sunstone drop necklace. A disc of Sterling Silver adds to the luxury of this necklace.
The Ancient Egyptians believed that the Sun God Ra travelled underground each night and that some of his energy and light was left behind in the rocks which became Sunstone.
Sunstone is a Feldspar mineral with copper platelets which give it the characteristic sparkle.
This faceted cube of natural Sunstone has a rich orangey caramel colour with lots of copper inclusions which give a stunning sparkle as it moves in the light. This gemstone is approx 8mm in size.
I have created a drop style necklace with this cube of Sunstone by adding a 925 Sterling Silver brushed disc. This gives a lovely movement and shows off the beautiful sparkle of this gemstone in this unique piece of jewellery. I have added it to an 44cm (18 inch) Sterling Silver rope chain. The drop is approx 3.5cm (1.6 inches) long.
There is a separate listing for a pair of earrings which would compliment this necklace beautifully.
Sunstone is said to align mind, body and spirit. Its warming colour gladdens the heart and instills feelings of joy and enjoyment of life.
I use ethically mined/sourced genuine gemstones in my jewellery. I reuse, recycle and re-purpose packaging materials wherever possible.
