Shungite Stone Pendant Hand Wrapped in Silver
This pendant is made of Russian Shungite and hand wrapped in 12 gauge sterling silver wire.
Size: 1 3/4" x 7/8".
The story of Shungite begins around 2 billion years ago, in the paleoprotezoic age. Precambrian rocks consisted of some of the earth’s earliest oil deposits. Shallow, brackish lagoons near chains of volcanos in western Russia were rich with sediments and algae. These specimen contributed to deposits of oil shale and crude oil. Later, when these deposits were subjected to heat and pressure, shungite formed into an almost pure form of carbon.
It’s carbon purity isn’t this mineral’s only quality, though. In 1992, the fullerenes found in shungite threw the mineral world for a loop. Fullerenes are carbon molecules that have formed into hollow, globular molecules. In Russia, shungite has long been used as a water purifier. In fact, Peter the Great established the first Russian spa, called Martial Waters, in Karelia where people could bathe in spring water purified by the shungite it flows through.
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.
