SEMI-PRECIOUS GEMSTONE; DENDRITIC LIMESTONE
Dendritic limestone cabochon is a neutral, beige background with striking black contrasting dendrites! This material is amazing! It is not a fossil. Here's the story – millions of years ago, there was water , very rich in manganese content, the water rapidly traveled; making a "fern like" pattern in the sediment – like fingers reaching to go further. Over time the water would evaporate, leaving all that manganese to collect in the crevice pattern – then the sediment would solidify, and that is how this gorgeous, scenic stone is created!
Handcrafted pendant is wired with sterling silver in bird shaped frame wrap. Piece has a large slide bail, and is large; approx. 2" long x 2" wide #1809-87
Dendritic limestone has all the properties of limestone, as well as manganese, and together, the combination of the two make a powerful healing stone!
If you were looking for something truly different, a natural piece of art – you found it!
