Artwork Description: Did this stone come from deep in outer space? The pattern of cream, peach and teal that swirls around the surface looks like something you'd see from the Hubble Space Telescope. It will surely become a conversation piece when you wear it to the office or out for a night on the town.
The pendant is approximately 2 1/2" x 1 1/3". A basket weave of tarnish resistant Argentium Sterling Silver presents the stone beautifully. It will be delivered to you on a 16" or 18" sterling silver chain. Choose your length below.
I lovingly hand cut all my cabochons, so each one is a unique piece of natural beauty. The shape, pattern, and size are determined as I study the stone and decide the best way to enhance its natural potential. I start with a chunk of rock then I saw, grind and polish away!
I found my River Flower Agates in Nanjing, China. Traveling from the Himalayan source of the Yangtze River to its banks in Nanjing small pieces of agate are broken and worn to smooth pebbles. These river stones are so admired in China that they were taken by the Chinese delegation to the 24th Seoul Olympic Games to represent “Peace Lucky Stone.”
The legend says that during the Liang of Southern Dynasties (502-557), Master Monk Yunguang built a simple altar on a local terrace and expounded the texts of Buddhism. This so moved the God that the heaven rained flowers onto the river. These then became beautiful and colorful stones. Today this location is a lovely memorial park and has both a monument and a museum to honor the exquisite stones.
