Beautiful Gaspeite Pendant Necklace with African Glass and Copper Chain
Earthy, organic and warm tones all come to mind when I look at this awesome Gaspeite Pendant One of a Kind Necklace!
Gaspeite is a relatively rare mineral, found only in a few localities. Its light green, almost apple green color is quite unique and some varieties are almost a neon green. It may contain brownish patches which give it a distinctive character. Gaspeite is found around and is named for the locality of Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec, Canada where it was originally found. It also can be found in Western Austrailia.
This gorgeous pendant is truly amazing and one of kind. It has beautiful colorations and unique patterns. It measures 1 1/2" by 5/8" by 1/4" thick. Also featured in this necklace are Smokey Topaz African Glass beads (see below the history of these glass beads) Sandy, Beige Afghan Jade smooth opaqe nuggets, Brown Afghan turquoise round stones, Swarovski crystal in a peridot color and last but not least, textured Wood beads. Enhancing the earthy natural element to the necklace is the antiqued copper chain in which these warm gemstones are suspended from..Truly exquisite and One of a Kind!!!
History of Glass Beads.
These glass beads are made by the Krobo People of Ghana, Africa. Powder glass beads are made by crushing old glass bottles to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries.
