Parrot Wing Chrysocolla Necklace
1 in stock
Chrysocolla is frequently mistaken for turquoise because of its intense blue-green colors; however, chrysocolla is much more vibrant, often displaying rich patterning which resembles the earth’s surface, complete with landforms and oceans, as might be viewed from a spacial vantage point. It is found anywhere that there are large copper deposits: Africa, Mexico, and the United States (primarily in Arizona).
This chrysocolla is intensely green with some black veining; set in sterling with a filigree layers, topped with a gemmy chrysoprase round cabochon, accented wire-woven sections and a small turquoise cabochon. The chain is hand-woven sterling silver finished with North American turquoise beads.
Pendant: 2.75 x 1.25 inches
