Striking Merlinite Sterling Silver Shield Pendant
This gorgeous statement pendant is part of the Merlinite Collection, borne from our Tucson trip in 2020.
I've cut and polished the gemstone and set it into sterling silver. The decorative bail is also handmade, allowing movement of the pendant, showing off the gemstone's dazzling details.
This particular stone has been shaped into a shield and inside the setting is 1" x 2" (including the bail). It features white and translucent quartz with black dendritic inclusions and is a glorious specimen! The back is open, showcasing the translucent beauty when held up to the light.
The included silver-plated cable chain is 20", embellished with complementary black beads and silver-colored pearls, and completed with a lobster clasp. The jump rings are welded shut for extra security. This pendant with its chain should sit a couple inches below your collar bone and complement just about any neckline in your wardrobe. Feel free to contact me if you have specific chain length requirements, I am happy to accommodate special requests!
A little info about Merlinite:
Merlinite is also known as dendritic opal or dendritic agate. It is a 6-7 on the Mohs scale, making it a durable gemstone. It is found in New Mexico. Merlinite is a comprised of white or translucent quartz and black dendritic inclusions, which is formed from the presence of manganese oxide.
Metaphysically, Merlinite is named for the wizard Merlin and is known for stimulating magical abilities, deep intuition, and recalling past-life. The black and white nature of the stone is said to help balance yin and yang, masculine and feminite energies, and aid spiritual growth.
In addition to its metaphysical properties, Merlinite is a symbol of fashion and style, makes a great statement piece.
Care for Your Unique Silver Jewelry
Use the included polish pad or cloth to keep your piece glowing. Silver dip products will remove the custom patina. To prevent tarnish, it is best to store your piece out of direct exposure to air. A small plastic bag is perfect and prevents your chains tangling with each other, particularly when you travel. Also, avoid spraying perfume or sunscreen onto your Bedrock Rose piece.
