The stone is a gorgeous malachite.
The last photo shows the pendant next to a ruler for size comparison.
The wire is solid sterling silver. The cord necklace is included, it is a waxed cord and is adjustable roughly 18"-20". Please note that the bail is big enough to slide the pendant off and put on your own sterling chain .
Malachite is the essence of joy and is known as the "stone of transformation" because it helps reveal and heal emotional pain by absorbing the pain into itself. It is especially helpful in bringing ease during times of change and gives the insight needed for personal growth.
Wire wrapping is a genre of jewelry which requires pliable wire to be shaped into each piece. As a piece progresses, the wire hardens and sometimes it is hammered to further strengthen a piece. It will retain it's shape, however if you try to bend it or it gets squished, it will bend. Do not place your wire wrapped jewelry in a purse or pocket.
Stone Surfaces are delicate, take care while wearing.
I do my best to take accurate and attractive photos that are true to color, using natural light. Colors will vary slightly from one screen to another.
Sterling silver will tarnish over time. To remove any tarnish you can use a jewelry polishing pad or cloth as well as many other jewelry cleaners.
