This eye-catching Necklace displays 2 strands of Unakite Faceted Teardrops. Unakite is an altered granite composed of green epidote, pink orthoclase feldspar, and colorless quartz. Unakite was first found in the Unakas Mountains of North Carolina, from where it gets its name. Unakite is prized for its unusual colors and our stones are quite striking. They are predominantly green in hue, though the intersection of pink and green also produces an attractive gold color. Some of the Teardrops display bold splashes of color while others are more muted. Each stone is unique. The Unakite is end-drilled, causing it to align end point to end point for an attractive display. The facets cause the stones to shimmer in reflected light.
We've paired the Unakite with 8mm topaz-hued Czech Luster Glass and 6mm translucent green Fire Polished Glass. The Glass adds color depth, translucency and sparkle. The Unakite is highlighted by six 9-by-12mm Ornate Sterling Silver Rondelles, which have ball & rope Star patterns on each side. The Rondelles are flanked by Copper Glass Discs, enhancing the visual display. At the top of the Necklace the 2 strands of Unakite transition to 2 strands of dark brown Pen Shell Heishi, streamlining the silhouette and ensuring wearer comfort. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Hammered Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 114 grams and the 2 Necklace strands are each 23 inches long (when wearing, a vertical length of about 9 inches).
