Epidote Crystal Quartz Stone Pendant Hand Wrapped in Silver

Size: 1 1/2 x 1 1/4".
Epidote wasn't identified as a separate mineral until the beginning of the nineteenth century by the French crystallographer Rene-Just Haüy. Before that, it was always considered to be the same mineral as actinolite. When epidote is combined with red felspar in the same mineral deposit it has been given the trade name unakite.
Epidote is a calcium aluminium iron silicate hydroxide that belongs to the Epidote group of minerals. They occur as prismatic, slender grooved crystals and as fibrous radiating aggregates. Epidote appears in the colour range from yellowish-green to greenish-black. Epidote is named after the numerous crystal faces.
The crystals have a vitreous lustre and are translucent to transparent.
Epidote can be found in Austria, Italy, Mexico and the USA.
My style is simple and elegant and it can be worn by both men and women.
I ensure that I only use real stones, therefore, each stone and silver wrap is a unique piece of artwork, no two pieces are alike. They are all unique and handmade by me. It is made with tender, love and care. If you have a stone you want wrapped, I can do that for you. I do customized orders, if you want anything else let me know.
