Genuine yellow fire agate with a natural black dendritic matrix adds a special intrigue and beauty to these natural stones. The focal bead is an unusually large Czech glass fire-polished round. On each side I added pretty gunmetal floral beadcaps. Coming up the sides of the necklace are more of the Czech jet fire-polished beads and tiny smooth gunmetal bicones. The necklace is finished off with a lovely TierraCast gunmetal, hammered, ellipse toggle closure. TierraCast is a company which produces high quality jewelry findings only in the United States. It is an intriguing artisan necklace that will take you through all seasons.
This is a longer length necklace which measures 24 inches from end to end. Included is a pair of matching earrings using the same yellow and black fire agate and Czech jet fire-polished glass. The earring dangles are placed on hypoallergenic gunmetal leverbacks that were produced in the United States. As a little extra added protection for sensitive ears, the portion of the leverback that goes into your ear has been coated with jewelry shield. The necklace set will come with a zippered jewelry pouch for storage.
Agate gemstones are one of the oldest stones in recorded history. It was actually used and worn as jewelry back in ancient Biblical times and has even been found wrapped with mummies in ancient Egypt. Agate is known as a stone of protection, protecting one from nightmares, stress and fatigue. The patterns that are produced, whether through banding, orbicular or dendritic growths make it one of mother earth's finest creations. It has certainly been one of my favorite gemstones.

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!
