Raw Amazonite with Druzy Agate Knotted Necklace (LS118)
These whopping (approx. 3cm x 2.5cm) pebbles of raw amazonite - lightly polished - are so tactile! I've teamed them with raw red agate, described as natural agate geodes but looking more like druzy agate - with microcrystals formed on the outside - to me. These are quite rare - I haven't seen them before and jumped at them when offered them by my supplier. I've knotted between each stone with doubled nylon thread to make the necklace secure and giving it a lovely drape.
The colours of the sky blue agate and burnt orange agate together just sang to me. They look wonderful against mustard and quite dramatic with navy blue.
The necklace is 21" (53.5cm) long and fastens with a gold vermeil (18ct gold on sterling silver) toggle clasp. All the metal parts are gold vermeil.
