A red agate talon is combined with unakite and magnesite, giving this mens necklace an urban look with a touch of the primitive. The focal pendant is a stylized talon of hand-cut red agate with striated bands of varying hues. I chose unakite tube beads with swirls and splashes of reddish-brown and green colors because they provided contrast as well as complimenting the red agate. The unakite beads are separated by rust-colored magnesite rondelles and golden spacers. A bronze hook-clasp completes the design.
The necklace measures 19 ¼ inches in length which is a good choker length for a man, but I can change the length if you like. The talon measures 1 ¾ inches in length. Traditionally agate was believed to be a healing and calming stone and is also thought to help build self-confidence and enhance concentration. Unakite is considered a grounding stone in addition to helping the wearer balance emotional, spiritual, and mental energies. This necklace combines ancient symbolism with a contemporary design for an edgy urban-primitive look.
