This is a large, rose-red striped and "Druzy" Agate pendant, double-sided and finished nicely on both sides. It contains "druzy" sections - quartz in its crystaline form.
This one comes with an attractive sterling leaf-shaped bail and full sterling 32" chain, 2mm in width. (You can easily adjust the length of the necklace with neeedle-nosed pliers).
This stone is indeed banded agate and quartz, but it has been dyed in order to obtain the unusual coloration. These come in many variations and are indeed striking.
"Druzy Agate" is one of my favorite forms of agate. They usually have opaque, translucent, and natural quartz sections, and can be very artistic. They are indeed quartz and banded agate, and to give them their unusual colors the stones have been dyed. These stones come in hundreds of variations and are indeed striking.
(As always, if you don't like the choice of bail or necklace, just contact me and we can make changes.)
