This amazing piece is a must have for those who love Rock Crystal (clear quartz) necklaces. The stones in this piece are quite large and weighty and the open back setting allows light to shine through for the ultimate in shimmer and shine. All the stones are mounted with a flat table on top and the pointed side underneath. The larges stone is 1 inch in width and the stones gradually reduce in size to the smallest which measures 5/8 of an inch in width. Although unmarked, my gemologist has assayed the piece to be true rock crystal mounted in sterling silver.
The piece measures 17-3/4 inches in length and 7/8 of an inch in height at the point of the largest stone. It is in excellent condition, however there are some surface scratches on a few of the stones a minor fracture at the top of the largest stone. None of these defects are visible when the necklace is being worn.
