A stunning, petrified wood fossil stone was combined with hand fabricated sterling silver to create this striking necklace. This natural stone has an earthy, organic feel ...... with beautiful hues of tan, caramel and brown, along with a gorgeous matrix. The earthiness of the stone blends well with the organic texture of the silver. The stone has been cut into a beautiful marquise shape and has a nice high polish. This one-of-a-kind necklace is sure to make a bold, striking statement!

I created a sterling silver bail to surround the stone and then wrapped it securely with sterling silver wire. The metal was hammered and textured to *echo* the matrix of the stone, and then given a soft charcoal patina to bring out the detail. Due to the unique characteristics of each natural stone - this necklace is a one-of-a-kind piece.

Petrified wood is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. It is the result of a tree - or "tree like" plants - that over time have completely transitioned into an actual stone. This transformation occurs underground - when wood becomes buried under sediment and is preserved due to a lack of oxygen.

MEASUREMENTS:
2-1/2" in length and 1-3/8" at widest point.

*** CHAIN OPTIONS: This pendant may be purchased WITH OR WITHOUT the chain.

If you select the "With Sterling Chain" option, it will come on the chain featured in the photos - which is an 18" oxidized solid sterling silver rope chain with lobster claw closure.

This necklace has coordinating earrings: www.silverandearth.com/product/sterling-silver-fossil-earrings-handmade-silver-stone-jewelry

All of my jewelry is my own original design and handcrafted by me in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
