This awesome piece is made from an Ammonite fossil that has naturally become opalescent and displays a rainbow of colors. It is a full Ammonite so it is 3d on both sides. The crystal is a natural citrine point. The copper goes just around the edges, so you could wear the piece on either side - both sides shown in last 2 photos.
The pendant is about 2 inches long, and the chain is about 26 inches long.
if you would like a different chain length please leave a note at checkout or email me immediately after purchase at email@example.com. Please consider measurements carefully.
How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my standards of excellent quality. Ring bands and many other connective parts are hand formed and are then sculpted onto the stone with a permanent epoxy. In the areas where I would like metal to be, I paint each piece with an electrically conductive paint. The next step is to put a removable, protective covering on all stones. The necklace will then go through a process where it is submerged into an acid bath and the areas with the conductive paint will begin to grow a super strong layer of 100% pure copper. This growth process takes 12 - 36 hours for each piece and is monitored during the process. After this is done, each piece is one by one hand polished, cleaned, oxidized, polished again, and then given a clear protective coating. After they are all dry and finished, they are ready to be added to high quality, beautiful chains :)
