Agates honor Aurora, Roman Goddess of the Dawn and Mother of the Winds. She brings the beauty of dawn each day, the vivid colours streaked and swirled across the clouds. It is an opaque variety of microcrystalline quartz and the name given to numerous varieties of banded Chalcedony.
This turquoise agate has been dyed beautiful turquoise and polished into a teardrop. It is then carefully wire wrapped in sterling silver wire. Afterwards it is treated to a generous quantity of silver solder whilst carefully protecting the agate from heat shock. Once the silver solder has cooled it is painted with a dark patina and polished to a shine. The result is a beautiful pendant with rustic, medieval qualities and a perfect accompaniment for any god or goddess on their next adventure!
***All necklaces made in this style may vary owing to the natural properties and colouring of the stone. You'll receive the one in the first photograph.***
The semi-precious agate is 3 cm tall and 1.5 cm wide and with the silver solder wire wrap work, the pendant overall is approx. 4 cm tall. The chain is available in your choice of length. For a handy guide to choosing the right necklace length for you, please visit:
