This is a listing for one (1) amazing OOAK dendritic agate pendant. This rare hand cut stone pendant has a 5mm diameter hole near the top which could be used to hang the pendant or to work in as design element in your next jewelry making project. This pendant is just crying out for a nifty wire wrap or setting. It is a beautiful elongated, tapered and rounded rectangle (sort of like a squared off teardrop.)
OK. Don't freak out at the price! If you look around the web, you will see that this extraordinary gemstone pendant is offered at a very good price. These stones pendants were hand cut by a lapidary friend of mine in the early 1990's. There were two stones, as you can see, in photographs 2 and 4 one is marked 'sold.'
Dendritic agate is chalcedony with fern like dark brown to black markings called dendrites which are manganese and iron inclusions in the base stone. The dendrites appear at various levels of the stone making it tricky to cut. They also give these stones real depth...amazing. The whitish chalcedony has an opalescent look because chalcedony always has a certain percentage of opal in it. Very interesting and unusual. This is sturdy, hard material which was beloved of Faberge in his jewelry...and he set it with diamonds.
