"These pieces are inspired from the natural beauty of Southwest rock formations, painted deserts, flora, fauna and wildlife" - Cathy
This one-of-a-kind fine silver necklace has an oval setting of Montana Moss Agate. Hand sculpted and carved from fine silver 999 metal clay with a beautiful hand-hammered sterling silver collar.
The stone originated in gravel deposits around the Yellowstone River and dates to around 10 million years ago. Coloring is a beautiful transparent yellow ochre, and red and brown from inclusions of manganese dendrites and red iron oxides that take on abstract shapes and forms.
Montana agate has been known to have many positive and healing aspects which fortify the whole body as well as it's connection to the earth. It amplifies power, improves healing, increases physical stamina and restlessness, increased self confidence and increased memory.
