This handmade pendant is one of my agate range, but is so different from some of the others. Agate comes in a huge variety of colours and patterns, and this aptly named moss agate mimics its namesake with beautiful shades of green and grey, and some incredibly detailed patterns. The simple setting allows attention to remain where is should be, on that lovely gemstone.
The gemstone measures approx 50 by 30mm, with the total length of the set piece coming to around 65mm. It is around 5mm deep. It is mounted on a 18 inch (45 cm) diamond cut belcher chain, and weighs approx 25g. This is a one off piece, with just one available.
Agate is a polycrystalline quartz (made up of tiny crystals of quartz). It is not one of the officially recognised birthstones, but some people link it to the month of September.
