This bracelet is made of choice smooth square and faceted oval shaped natural Smoky Quartz beads and round faceted peach colored Sunstone beads. You will love the smoky gray color combined with the alluring peach. I have used 0.925 sterling silver beads between the larger beads, and a handcrafted Hill Tribe silver round toggle for closure. At the toggle hangs a brushed silver heart charm and one of the beautiful oval Smoky Quartz beads.
Smoky Quartz is the clear grey or brown variety of natural Quartz. Natural healers have long used it as a mood enhancer, it is recommended to dispel ones negative energy and depression. It is considered the gemstone for the Zodiac sign of Capricorn.
Sunstone is a translucent to transparent gemstone that produces flashes of light due to the inclusions within the stone. These inclusions could be of Copper or Hematite. Sunstone ranges in color from yellow, to peach to orange and red. It is mined in Australia, Canada, India, Sri Lanka and the USA. The largest deposits in the US can be found in Oregon. Just as its name suggest, Sunstone is associated with a cheery and optimistic disposition.
Hill Tribe Silver beads are distinctive and hand-made by artisans of the mountain regions Northern Thailand using methods passed down through the centuries. They are made from almost pure silver (0.999) and contain more silver than sterling silver, which contains 0.925 silver.
