This stretch bracelet is made from a relatively rare and interesting form of Agate, known as Turritella Agate. Embedded in the gemstone are visible fossilized tightly coiled cone shaped mollusk shells. These shells belong to marine mollusks from eons ago. Turritella Agate is mined in the USA in Wyoming and Utah. I have used a gold-plated Pewter (nickle-free and made in the USA)skull bead and two faceted beads to highlight this bracelet.
Agates are very fine crystalline quartz and are very durable semi-precious gemstones. Since Agate is laid down by nature in layers, they are often found in creatively striped. Agates are found all over the world and since ancient times have been considered a powerful healing stone, often worn as a talisman or amulet. Generally associated with courage, prudence and strength of emotion. It is the stone for the Zodiac sign of Gemini, and also for the 12th and 14th wedding anniversary.
Length: One size fits all (6.75 inches unstretched).
Bead size: 10 mm Agate rounds.
Care: Clean with soft fabric, or non-abrasive polishing cloth. Avoid direct contact with perfumes, hairspray, and deodorants. Jewelry should be worn after application of cosmetics. Store wrapped in soft fabric or sealed in plastic bag.
