Semi precious Aragonite star cluster pendant with rustic sterling silver stirrup style connector.
Aragonite is a unique raw crystal, often referred to as the Sputnik or Cave Flower owing to the outward points in its shape. In fact, Aragonite was first discovered in the Spanish town of Molina de Aragón, hence its name. Some also refer to Aragonite clusters as "The Conservationists Stone" and it has been known in aquaria, to replicate reef conditions. It provides the materials necessary for much sea life and also keeps the pH of the water close to its natural level, to prevent the dissolution of biogenic calcium carbonate. Furthermore, Aragonite has been successfully tested for the removal of pollutants like zinc, cobalt and lead from contaminated wastewaters.
In folklore and more recently, the Wicca movement, Aragonite is connected to the Earth Goddess Gaia, and is thought to have been used as a healing stone to clear blockages in the heart, mind, and spirit. A perfect gift for the earth warrior in your life.
This Sputnik cluster specimen has many perfect outward crystal forms and a deep copper brown colour which is translucent in places. The pendant is 3.5 cm tall and the stone itself is 2 cm wide. I have carefully drilled it using an underwater technique and created a rustic sterling silver "stirrup" style connector with scroll ends to attach it to a sterling silver or silver plated chain in your choice of length. Please note that the stone moves in the connector and the connector is purposely loose in order not to put pressure on the crystal. It is still secure nevertheless.
