A Pietersite and Citrine pendant from our own Copeland artisans. This steely blue & black pendant is in our Custom Collection, designed and crafted by Chris Copeland. Chris has tastefully set this compelling stone in a modern minimalist design in sterling silver. This minimalist design is a nod to Mother Nature as the true artist by giving her gems the room to shine.
A sterling silver pendant featuring a blue & black pietersite pendant in shimmering mysterious clouds of steely blues and blacks with gold highlights, weighing in at a hefty 37.50 carats. Additionally, three small golden citrines at the bottom pick up on the gold highlights in the pietersite.
Very versatile, you’ll find the dark neutral color palate goes well with almost everything.
High polish on this 37.50 carat pietersite really shows off its intriguing chatoyancy. Chatoyancy is an optical reflective quality that looks like shimmering silk. Consequently, you’ll see mesmerizing movement and metallic-like color shifts in this stone. Some people call it Tempest Stone for its stormy look. You may be most familiar with the chatoyancy phenomenon from the Tiger’s Eye gem. However, its silk-like fibers line up straight instead of swirling.
Lastly, you can wear this pendant on a chain or a leather cord. Therefore, making this large piece suitable for women or men. (Chain not included)
