SM2This pendant is  ‘unique’: you will not find another Smithsonite necklace like this anywhere! Whenever I have shown this pendant, everyone wants to touch the textured crystal!
This Cabochon of Natural Green Smithsonite is from Magdalena, Sonora, Mexico. Smithsonite is a Zinc Carbonate and it is believed that copper is the Chromophore in this beautiful Zinc Mineral. The top of the Cabochon is not polished but exhibits a natural botryoidal crystal pattern. SM3
The stone is surrounded by beautiful Czech fire polished crystals and Swarovski crystals with galvanized Sea Foam seed beads. The galvanized beads were also used in the spiral edging, this is the first time I have used this edging I think it really sets of the stone! Pendant is backed with ultra suede.

Pendant measures 8.5 X 4cms (3 1/4 X 1 1/2 inches) including the bail. Necklace measures 48cms (19 inches) long.
