This beautiful, handmade, Bluebird Azurite Chryscolla cabochon is wire wrapped in Argentium Sterling Silver wire. The color mix and pattern in this are very eye-catching. The striking deep blue Azurite spider webbing over a background of turquoise-blue Chrysocolla with bits of Malachite and Cuprite for accent. This cabochon has a beautiful abstract pattern within which reminds you of a painting. With the change of color, within the stone, from left to right, there is great movement throughout. This pendant comes with a sterling silver chain and gift box. This piece measures approximately 2 from the top of the bail to the bottom of the pendant and the pendant weighs about 16.6 grams. It is about 1¾” at its widest point. This is a freeform cabochon that is hand cut by me.
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 and does not firescale.
Includes 18" Sterling Silver Chain
