I actually bought this from a woman with amazing jewelry and fell in love with the stone, without knowing what it was. After help and research, I discovered it was golden rutilated quartz. Rutilated quartz is special for many reasons, including some say healing and other powers. The golden color in the threads makes this harder to find and is highly sought after. I wish I could have gotten a picture of the pendant hanging as the open back allow light to enter to further highlight the golden rutile inclusions.
This is some hand made pendant notwithstanding the quartz. It is just under 4 inches wide at its wings and is 2 1/2 inches long including the large sterling bale. It weighs 45 grams. It also has other bezel set stones which I believe are amethyst that accent the wings and as eyes. The chain is 24 inches long and is clearly hand forged with a link that looks like elongated figure 8's. It would also look great on a shorter chain to wear closer to the neck. The back is signed and has a name under it that I can not make out. This amazing necklace is in excellent condition. Truly a work of art.
