Iolite Shards on Silver Chain Necklace (SM145)
These are beautiful shards of raw iolite (also known as water sapphire) which I've teamed with faceted solid silver Karen Hill Tribe beads (purer than sterling) and suspended from a hammered sterling silver hoop on each side with a chunky sterling silver chain.
Iolite is one of the very few stones that changes colour, depending on the light (Alexandrite is another), looking blue in one light, violet in another.
These are raw stones - they have simply been drilled.
The necklace is 17" (43.5cm) long, fastening with a Karen Hill Tribe silver toggle clasp.
For those who like raw gemstones, but in a more sophisticated way, on the silver chain.
