Gemjunky Necklace of Mauve Phosphosiderite and Kunzite Beads with Gold Accents
Unique mauve necklace of highly polished Phosphosiderite and Kunzite beads accented with goldtone flutters. The handmade 28 inch necklace is a marvel of color! These two gemstones play off each other and create more than the sum of the parts. The Phosphosiderite spheres measure a generous 17MM and the glowing Kunzite measure 10MM. The necklace is secured with a vermeil hook and eye clasp. This is the first time I've purchased Phosphosiderite and created necklaces with it and I love its color and feel. It is said to be a healing stone and have a calming, soothing vibration that aids in stress reduction. The name 'Phosphosiderite' comes from its mineralogical properties: Phosphorus and Iron. Kunzite was first discovered in 1902 in San Diego County, CA. It was sent to George Frederick Kunz, the Tiffany & Co. mineralogist to identify and after whom the gemstone was named. It is part of the family known as spodumene.
