NEW DESIGN! QUARTZ "LARIAT" Necklace, Sterling Silver
This design combines the natural beauty of a Quartz stone with a smaller version of my "lariat" necklaces, creating a lovely, adjustable necklace that you may be tempted to play with the whole time you're wearing it!
Quartz crystal was once believed to be an eternal ice sent by the heavenly gods. Until the late 1500s, many scholars thought this stone was fossilized ice. Quartz crystal is actually a mineral, one of the most abundant minerals in the Earth's continental crust, composed of silicon and oxygen. Quartz can be icy clear or have inclusions, veils, bubbles and various colors. It is also known as rock crystal, crystal quartz, universal crystal or clear quartz. People in the earliest recorded times believed in the magical powers of quartz. Ancient Roman, Egyptian and Greek civilizations used quartz crystals as potent talismans. The word quartz is thought to come from the German word "quarz," and the word crystal comes from the Greek word "krystallos," which means ice. The Ancient Japanese believed quartz formed from the breath of a white dragon, and regarded it as representing perfection. Quartz has been used throughout history in rain rituals, crystal skulls and spheres for crystal balls to predict the future since the middle ages.
Quartz enhances spiritual growth, spirituality, awareness, and wisdom. It increases inspiration and creativity. It can also help with concentration, studying, and retaining what one learns. Quartz is a stone of harmony and is helpful in romantic relationships.
The Quartz stones are each approximately 3/8" tall x 3/8" wide- each stone varies slightly of course, so the one you receive may differ slightly from the ones pictured here, but they will certainly be very close in size, shape and coloring!
