Four Ancient Insects Young Amber Copal Citrine Halo Silver Pendant Design 337
Here is a well dressed ladies halo pendant crafted in style # 337 of our online style selection catalog. The feature gem is full bezel set into a central opening in the main frame, a very secure mount that leaves most of the gem on display. A halo of elegantly spaced bead set accent gems, each in its own drilled opening, surround the feature. A foundation separated from the main frame by blocks forms slots to allow light entrance into all the gems as the back is open to allow additional light entrance. Additional accent gems adorn the bail. The bail is a dangle type that allows the pendant to swing.
This exact Sterling silver pendant is in stock and is ready for immediate shipping.

The weight of this fine and hefty piece is around 7.4 grams.
Fast facts: Copal is a partially fossilized tree resin often over 100,000 years old thus is also known a young Amber. The most interesting pieces have insects, leaves, insect eggs, spiders, and other natural things from long ago trapped and preserved in this beautiful material. The plain pieces are often used as incense as it will burn and does have a wonderful pine scent. Being only about a 2 on Moh’s scale makes Copal a challenge to set into a piece of jewelry. This one survived the process but be careful as it is fragile material. Please treat it with care so it will wear fine for a few thousand more years.
