There’s nothing better than a stone with a personality, and this Sonoran Dendritic certainly has some! The setting is surrounded by little discs, with a small section graduated in size to accent the shape of the stone. This pendant is made from sterling and fine silver. It hangs from a sterling silver chain, 19”, with a hand forged hook and eye clasp (also sterling). The pendant itself is 1 and 3/8” tall and ¾” wide. A great, earthy and artistic piece that’s sure to strike up some conversation!
*Pendant is pictured on a mini-bust. Bust is not life size.

It can have scenic-looking pictures as part of its’ patterning. It was discovered in 2009 and it appears it was only first offered at a mineral show in 2011. It is a variety of rhyolite.
