Dendritic Agate with Turquoise Clusters

Delicate branching in honey brown through cloudy white agate--this dendritic agate is a show-stopper. I set it in silver and added a cluster of turquoise at the bottom. The chain is wire-wrapped by hand, with milky-white chalcedony and measures 16 to 18 inches with a chain extender and handmade clasp.

The bezel is fine silver and the remaining silver is argentium sterling silver. Argentium is a silver alloy like sterling where some of the copper has been replaced with germanium to increase the tarnish resistance--your silver stays brighter, longer!
