Eilat Chrysocolla Lapis Lazuli Sterling Silver Large Necklace Pendant
$95.00 These intense blues of genuine eilat (chrysocolla) set in tested and guaranteed sterling silver create a look that is bold, luxurious and elegant. This gorgeous pendant features an oval chrysocolla, 1-5/8" by 1-3/8" stone set in a 925 sterling silver bezel with a darker stone of deep blue lapis on the top. The large stone is liberally flecked with pyrite, some azurite and some pale green malachite. The pendant captures the intense blues, encapsulating the colors of that magical part of the day known as “l’heure bleue” or “la hora azul.” Pendant measures 2-3/4" long and 1-3/8" across. The bale has a large 1/4" opening. Excellent condition.
Chrysocolla, the king of carbonate copper gemstones, is an alluring, vivid blue-green color and is often mistaken for turquoise because they share many visual similarities. It can often be found intermingled with malachite, turquoise and azurite, creating a wonderful mixed gemstone known as eilat stone. Legend has it that eilat stone was originally mined in King Solomon's mines in Africa. The rich, vibrant blue and green colors of chrysocolla are reminiscent of looking down upon the earth's surface from space.
Chrysocolla can be found wherever large copper deposits occur, most notably in Africa, Mexico and the state of Arizona. Apache chrysocolla from the state of Arizona is a mixture of chrysocolla, turquoise, jasper, lapis, malachite and quartz crystal minerals. The history of Apache chrysocolla being used as a stone of gentle healing coincides with the history of other cultures.
