This amethyst stalactite crystal slice is a bud from a column of amethyst stalactite that took millions of years to develop deep within a cave of mother earth. Stalactite amethyst has amazing layers of colours, ranging from soft white, mossy green, to peachy orange, culminating in captivating purple and lilac amethyst crystals. This piece is polished on both sides, electroplated in 24k gold and measures approximately 1.25 inches high by 7/8 of an inch wide although due to the uniqueness of each slice the measurements vary slightly from one to the next. It is hung from double bails on an absolutely gorgeous and luminous 24k gold overlay chain with faceted clear hydro-quartz stations. Length: 16" with an additional 2" extension chain..you know, for options. My gold overlay jewelry is produced by applying an average of 20 to 30 mils of 24kt gold onto the surface of a high quality brass based chain. It has on average 7 times the thickness of most gold plated jewelry. Acid gold is a harder gold plating formula that was pioneered by the electronics industry which produces a durable finish. Unlike basic decorative gold electroplated jewelry, jewelry that is finished with an acid gold application has excellent long term wearing qualities. * Free domestic shipping via First Class Mail * Arrives ready for gifting in a cute boho gift box and usually ships same day or next.
