This beautiful, blue stone, Larimar, was first discovered in the Dominican Republic in the 1970's. The stone's unique light blue color with gray matrix is believed to be the color of the ocean in tropical areas and represents peace, clarity, healing and love. Talented Navajo Native American artist Betty Bitsie, created this pendant with a large, beautiful Larimar stone and that has a saw-tooth bezel, hand-twisted rope design and hand-carved platform that are cut with precision. Betty Bitsie has even handcrafted a flower in the sterling silver on the bale for added detail. Wear this pendant on a sterling silver chain or with a beaded necklace that you already have. It is beautiful!
Lee Thompson has used a single cabochon stone of Chrysocolla as the focal point of this lovely pendant. The stunning emerald colored stone is mounted on a platform that is accented with sterling silver beads and hand-stampings. The bale is even hand stamped which calls attention to the meticulous handcrafted skills of the artist. The size, color and design of this pendant is a really attention getter.
Chrysocolla is mined in the former USSR and Zaire as well as Chile. This stone is known for its healing abilities among the Native American cultures. It is believed to strengthen the body's resistance, increase wisdom and peace. Chrysocolla promotes level headedness, encourages clarity of thought and a neutral, cool attitude during turbulence. It can be used to decrease nervousness and irritability.
