The Elegance of Seraphinite Never Goes Out of Style~and Neither Will this incredible Pendant-Necklace Combination (GRN-019)
This outstanding Seraphinite Pendant-Necklace combination is a naturally occurring rich deep forest green with an amazing chatoyancy (pearly white glow), which results from a mica component to the stone. Miriam chose the swirling Sterling Silver clasp to compliment the flaming swirls of the Seraphinite. The name Seraphinite is derived from the Latin word "seraphim" referring to angels. The allusion to angels is because of the feathery wing-like patterns made by the Silvery-white Mica contained within the stone.

More About Seraphinite: Seraphinite (Serafina or Clinochlore) is a natural deep forest green to green-black with inclusions of Silvery Mica. The Mica inclusions have a beautiful pearly-white chatoyancy, much like Charoite. The stone is a member of the Chlorite Group of minerals ("Chloros” meaning green). It is mined in eastern Siberia, Russia, near Bratsk and Lake Baikal.
About Hill Tribes Fine Silver: These incredible beads are created completely by hand in the remote mountain areas of Thailand, using a centuries old method, with the distinctive styling of the Hill Tribes. Fine silver has a purity of 95-99%, higher than 92.5% sterling silver. The silver is softer than sterling, the color is whiter, and it does not tarnish as readily as sterling silver.
