Renee says: “It’s hard to believe, but these are the true and natural colours of this remarkable stone, found ONLY in Tasmania, Australia! It’s called “Serpentine with Stitchtite” and it’s a beautiful rich green with purple. I’ve set this glorious stone as always in solid sterling silver and dangled from the black cord necklace. (Which I am including.) The pendant would also work well on a silver cuff or chain. I am married to a Tasmanian, and have spent lots of time on this remarkable island state, it’s natural beauty and charm are a joy! If this piece speaks to you, be quick as I know it will not last. Click on images for up close peek.”
