Banded Black & White British Gemstone Pendant.
This is a men’s or women’s small round pendant in white and black striped stone which I have handcrafted into a cabochon using lapidary (stonecutting) techniques, and set in sterling silver.
The gemstone in this pendant is British gneiss, which I collected by hand in the Northumbrian region of England. This is most likely Lewisian gneiss stone, originating in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. Gneiss is a metamorphic rock typically containing quartz, marble and feldspar as well as other minerals, often in distinct patterns such as these.
- Pendant diameter: 7/16 inches (11 mm).
- The necklace comes on a sterling silver trace chain – please select the length.
