Distinctive Petals in Mauve, Rich Burgundy, and Gray Artistic Stone Necklace (PUR-009)
Crazy Horse Stone is aptly nicknamed because each distinctive stone shows a different pattern of amazing patterns in light grays, mauves, and rich burgundy wines. Some stones show more solid burgundy, and others may be a golden tan with black markings. In this incredibly unique necklace of scalloped petal-shaped stone disks, Miriam added round, deeper burgundy Crazy Horse Stones as contrast to the pale gray, mauve and burgundy wine colorations. Sterling silver nuggets set-off each of the round stones and add even more interest to this one-of-a-kind design.
- Full length of the necklace is approximately 20.5 inches, including the decorative Sterling Silver clasp.
- Scalloped petal-shaped wavy disks are 20mm in diameter and 8mm deep.
- Round stones are 8mm.
- Silver nuggets range from 5 to 10mm.
- The necklace is strung on a strong but flexible 0.019, 49-strand stainless steel wire that is nylon coated.
While often referred to as Jasper, Crazy Horse Stone is a form of limestone, more commonly called “Artistic Stone” —likely because of its fabulous splashes of color. The stones are often coated with a clear epoxy to provide better luster and hardness; some are glossy, others are matte. Either way, coated and polished, or with a non-glossy surface, the exotic natural circles and streaks are all provided by Mother Nature as a singular work of art. No two stones are alike, just as Miriam’s designs are one-of-a-kind creations that epitomize the fashion expression “wearable art.” A similar “Crazy” patterned stone —called “Wild Horse”—has distinctive white patterns surrounded by rich toasty and reddish brown colorations.The geological name of this interesting stone is magnesite, This is a newer stone that was discovered in the mid-90’s near the Globe copper mine in the Gila wilderness area of southern Arizona. Some call this decorative stone Wild Horse or Buffalo Turquoise but it is NOT turquoise! Miriam is currently working witha variety of these "Wild" stones—soon to be launched on this website.
