Double Druzy, Chalcedony Concha Agate Druzy, Orange Sun Druzy Quartz, Desert Sands Necklace
An oval chalcedony concha druzy stone in shades of gray, ivory, and orange reminds me of shifting desert sands. It is prong-set into a sterling silver wire basket, and sits atop a smaller oval natural glittering orange druzy quarts stone, like a little sun, also prong-set and soldered in sterling silver onto a wire basket. The stones are separated by soldered sterling silver bars with a half-round bale and the necklace hangs from a sterling silver cable chain with a secure sterling lobster clasp. All the sterling components have been hand-oxidized for a darker finish. Completely handmade in my Chicago studio and one of a kind; this is a stunning pendant.
Chalcedony is a nurturing stone thought to promote friendship and good will. It absorbs negative energy. It brings the mind, body, emotions and spirit into harmony. Chalcedony instills feelings of benevolence and generosity. It alleviates hostility and transforms melancholy into joy, eases self-doubt, creates openness and enthusiasm, and absorbs and dissipates negative thoughts, emotions and bad dreams.
Druzy quartz has several healing properties. Overall, the stone cleanses and increases the body's natural therapeutic properties and reinforces the spirit. It is also believed to offer the stability needed to avoid despair or feelings of panic or fear.
