This is a beautiful Crazy Lace Agate with Orbs, wrapped in Argentium Sterling Silver.  This Crazy Lace Agate has wonderful fortification banding that has a nice flow of lines throughout. This looks to be an agate from Mexico.  It is approx. 2 ½ in. in length from the bail to the bottom of the stone, and 1 ½ in. in width.  It is wrapped in Argentium Sterling Silver and is displayed on a Sterling Silver chain.

Argentium® Sterling Silver is a patented and trademarked alloy that is at least 92.5% pure silver, just like traditional sterling silver. What makes it different from traditional sterling silver is that a small amount of germanium replaces some of the copper that is usually the other 7.5% of sterling silver. Peter Johns, a professor of silversmithing at Middlesex University in England, invented Argentium® Sterling Silver in 1996.

Argentium® Sterling Silver
• is highly tarnish-resistant.
• does not firescale.
