A unique characteristic of this 22 carat, robin-egg, blue turquoise is the presence of the black "matrix" in the stone. The stone is set on a sturdy, 22 gauge sterling silver back. It is surrounded by a "picket fence" type bezel. Triangle wire sweeps below the stone to frame round, sterling pegs which adds another unique element to this eye-catching pendant.
- 2.25 inches from the bale to the bottom of the pendant (60mm)
- 1.25 inches at it widest (30mm)
- The bale is 10mm wide and will slip on to most chains or chokers.
Fun Fact: The matrix is formed by the thin veins of the host stone. These veins interweave throughout the stone, creating a unique pattern which contrasts with the blue. Similar to individual fingerprints, matrices vary from stone to stone, creating one-of-a-kind pieces that are visibly distinct from one another.
