Here is a joyful collection of rocks--boulder opal, tanzanite, pink sapphire and two dendritic agates. They are arranged somewhat like flower petals and between each are dotted sprays of silver. Clustered between the stones are beads of brown tourmaline, tanzanite and pink sapphire. The pendant measures 1 3/4 by 1 3/4 inches and suspends from a chain that adjusts from 16-18 inches.
Argentium sterling silver is a silver alloy where most of the copper has been replaced by germanium which lends greatly enhanced tarnish resistance over standard sterling. It is .935 silver--more pure silver than .925 sterling. In addition, argentium sterling is produced using only recycled silver.
