Beautiful Bronze Pendant Shimmers in the Sunlight (EAR-030)
This stunning Bronzite Necklace Pendant comes with 16-inch Sterling Silver chain, and is reversible. Photos of both sides of the Pendant show the rich chocolate brown with metallic areas that feature a distinctive golden-bronze shimmering quality. The stone is a fine example of natural Bronzite at its best, and is from Miriam’s Private Collection. The Sterling Silver accent and small round Bronzite beads add a unique style to this attention-getting example of Wearable Art. Miriam photographed the finished jewelry in very bright Arizona sunlight to show the full chatoyancy (shimmer and glow) of both sides of the stone. This is a one-of-kind design.

BRONZITE is a mineral that contains iron and magnesium. Gemologists refer to the shimmering quality of this stone as chatoyancy--an optical reflectance that looks like a silky sheen. Technically, chatoyancy comes either from the fibrous structure of the material or from fibrous inclusions or cavities within the stone. Bronzite deposits are found in Burma, Brazil, Kenya, India, Mexico, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Tanzania and the United States.
