This handcrafted pendant features three incredible stones; a stunning piece of genuine Nacozari Turquoise, a gorgeous rainbow Moonstone, and a beautiful large piece of larimar. The setting itself has been made with a solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) bail, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and sterling silver trims and accents. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidized, polished to a high shine, and strung onto a 72cm adjustable black organic cotton cord. This means that it can be worn as a choker, a long layering necklace, and anything in between! Like all my work, this pendant is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!

💎 LARIMAR LORE:
Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It occurs where crystals grow together within basaltic lava cavities. The presence of copper in the stone helps to create beautiful translucent shades of soft blues, whites and turquoise. The more intense the blue, the rarer and higher the value of the stone.
Larimar is a crystal that promotes serenity and relaxation. It can help relieve stress, lower anxiety, heal and promote a pleasant atmosphere around you. As a crystal of the Throat Chakra, Larimar can help with communication. It is also regarded as a great stone for singers or public speakers. As well as this, Larimar is thought to be a great stone to help in finding a soulmate.
💎 NACOZARI TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors.
Wearing Turquoise is said to bring strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and good fortune. It is a symbol of friendship, aids wearers while traveling and brings peace to the home.
The Nacozari Turquoise mine is a mine in Sonora, Mexico, just south of the Bisbee, Arizona mine and in the same mountain range. Nacozari turquoise can be found in bright sky blue and deep navy blue colors and due to the mine no longer being in operation, Nacozari Turquoise is fast becoming highly collectible as it becomes increasingly impossible to get.
💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Rich in historical significance, Moonstone was admired by the Romans for over 2000 years, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon.
Legendary as 'The Traveller's Stone,' Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities.
