Finnish spectrolite gemstone, set in a sterling silver open-bezel frame. A mystical piece with beautiful flashes that reveal themselves specially in darker environments. The pendant measures approximately 2 cm x 2 cm and hangs from a 60 cm long sterling silver chain - but please leave me a message if you'd like me to add it to a longer chain. This piece will ship internationally with tracked free shipping.
Alcyone is part a series of seven pendants I handcrafted inspired by the Pleiades constellation, a distant cluster that has become a muse for folklore and rituals of various ancestral groups all around the world.
The gemstones were gifted to me in their raw state, so I was lucky to do the lapidary work myself. I let each stone guide my hands according to their natural shapes, hence the asymmetrical and slightly uneven details on their surfaces.
Finnish spectrolite is a stone often associated with healing and transformation, being particular useful when facing moments of difficulty that involve grief or sorrow.
Alcyone is a very sensitive piece that requires special care, so I'll make sure to include a letter containing the basics of how to care for her.
