Artfully handcrafted in Brazil by skilled artisans, this Amethyst tongue pendant combines the stunning beauty of a highly polished, one of a kind, genuine 20 x 18 mm Amethyst tongue and a fine .925 Sterling Silver beaded cap with an antique finish.
This is natural, untreated Amethyst and it has some natural inclusions which add interesting, unique and one of a kind characteristics to the gemstone. Said inclusions are not considered a defect, but rather a characteristic of the natural beauty and wonder of the earth's geology. An 18 inch bright and shiny, fine .925 Sterling Silver box chain with a spring ring clasp is included.
Please note that due to the the light defusing dome we use to photograph our jewelry the Amethyst tongue is slightly lighter than it appears in the picture.
