This handcrafted pendant features two incredible stones; a beautiful piece of genuine Nacozari Turquoise and a stunning Moss Agate that looks as though there is an entire forest within it. The setting of this piece comprises of a solid sterling silver 1.9mm handle, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and sterling silver trims and accents. It also features a sterling silver leaf that curves around the side of the Moss Agate. The pendant has then been sanded smooth, oxidised in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. It hangs from a 72cm adjustable black vegan organic cotton cord, which means that it can be worn as a choker, long layering necklace, or anything in between! Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, environmentally-friendly methods and cruelty-free materials!

💎 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 colours and due to the mine no longer being in operation, Nacozari Turquoise is fast becoming highly collectible as it becomes increasingly impossible to get.
💎 MOSS AGATE LORE:
In many cultures throughout history, Moss Agate has been known as the crystal of healing, growth and life. It was considered a miraculous healing stone for tribal priests of the past, giving them power to interact with our human organic system, and was used as a talisman to make warriors strong and victorious. The stone was often associated with agriculture, used by farmers and gardeners.
Moss Agate is a stone of wealth, bringing abundance in all forms. It is great to help with small businesses, and wonderful to help the wearer increase their savings.
It is also a wonderful healing stone, worn during illnesses to shorten their duration and speed up the recovery. Wear Moss Agate to help reduce stress, calm the mind and heal the body. Wearing it will also clear your mind and the environment from negative energies as it is a wonderful cleansing stone.
