Just uploaded this morning! Turritella agate is a form of chalcedony, a member of the quartz family. That makes it unique are the sea creatures and fossilized snail patterns that can be seen within the stone; it is like a glimpse into a prehistoric world! Fittingly, this is a stone that facilitates connection with the past and the ancestors, including past lives and past worlds.
A magnificent 60 ct designer-cut grade AAA black turritella agate cabochon is on a strand of 6mm black obsidian rounds, 8mm black lava stone rounds, 6mm silver-fused quartz rounds, and luminous 10mm white quartz rounds, with black and silver hematite spacers. The beads are strung on professional quality beading wire secured with crimps and wire guards. The necklace fastens with an easy-to-work fine silver-plated pewter lobster claw clasp and measures 18 1/4″ in circumference. (If you need a longer length, I would be happy to include an extender chain at no extra charge; just let me know in “note to seller” when you make your purchase.) The cabochon measures about 2″ x 1″, not including the bail.
Black obsidian facilitates spirit communication and grounding. White quartz enhances connections with spirit guides and the ability to look into the past. Lava stone comes from the core of the earth; it originates are fiery molten brimstone that bubbles the surface and then cools. Once the stone has cooled, it becomes porous and black. It is known as basalt, and is most commonly found in the ocean. Lava stone has incredible grounding qualities and helps with calming emotions and shedding unwanted attachments.
The necklace is $100, which accounts for the cost of materials and labor. However, I AM still having a 25% off sale (through the end of tomorrow, Friday the 4th), and if you enter the coupon code GRATITUDE in your shopping cart prior to checkout on Etsy the price comes down to only $75, which can further be divided into installment payments if need be.
