Rhytidome Necklace

Sale price $ 124.00 Regular price $ 248.00

  • genuine slice of petrified wood that has been naturally encased in chalcedony! I love the dramatic contrast of light and dark in this piece, the preserved wood grain patterns, and how the bark has been frozen in time as it began to pull away from the rest of the limb.
  • hand fabricated sterling silver setting with a brushed, antiqued finish
  • substantial oval link sterling silver chain with a chunky lobster claw clasp - measures 18" including the width of the pendant, leave a note at checkout if you'd like a different length
  • the stone measures 1 3/4" wide x 1 1/2" tall
  • a true treasure from the earth, this piece is one of a kind and ready to ship!

This specimen was found in Eden Valley Colorado and dates to the Eocene, about 50 million years ago.
