Hemimorphite and Aventurine (SS11)
Sorry - now sold!
The way the Hemimorphite crystals are formed are what give it its name, "hemi", meaning half and "morph" meaning shape with one end of the cyrstal being blunt, the other more pointed. These seem to be the blunt ends, lovely rounded stones in a matt pale green. I wanted to keep them all together so beaded one side of this necklace with hemimorphite, the other with two strands of green aventurine. Aventurine was named from the Italian "A Ventura" meaning "by chance".
As Hemimorphite is said to bring good luck and the name of aventurine means 'by chance" I wonder if this would be a good necklace to wear when purchasing one's next lottery ticket?
The necklace is 19" (482mm) long with the beads caught up in sterling silver and finished with a Karen Hill Tribe fine silver toggle - which could be brought to the front to show it off!
