I've hand-set this stunning Sonoran Dendritic Rhyolite gemstone in a sterling silver pronged basket and soldered a sterling silver evil eye charm to the top, with a sterling silver chain and lobster clasp. All of the silver is oxidized. This gemstone has a gorgeous blue-gray color with maroon, violet, and ivory veins and patches running through it. The stone's markings have the appearance of a landscape, and I like the combination of an all-seeing eye keeping watch over the land.
The evil eye is a popular symbol of protection in many cultures, meant to protect the wearer from evil spirits. It dates back to classical Greek antiquity.
Sonoran Dendritic Rhyolite Jasper comes from Mexico. It's made from volcanic rock with silica crystal. It's said to enhance self-esteem, healing, and peace of mind, and is a stone of abundance.
The pendant without chain measures 3/4" wide x 1 1/2" high, and total length is 20". The chain can be shortened upon purchase.
