Larvikite in Argentium Sterling Silver

 

 

Long, slim line Larvikite wrapped in Argentium Sterling Silver.   Complimented by the cool of the Argentium sterling silver, this has a nice feel when you wear it.  In 2008 Larvikite was selected as the Norwegian National Rock.  Larvikite is named after the town of Larvik, the largest town in the region where it is quarried.  This rock has beautiful colors of grey and blacks, with flashes of blue when you turn it into the light.   It is approximately 55 carats in weight and 3 ½ in. in length from the bail to the bottom of the stone.  About 1 in. in width.  It 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.
