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.
