NEW! MONUMENTALiswoman HUGE QUARTZ Necklace OOAK #5
I recently sourced some larger Quartz crystals so that we could make some really BIG, MONUMENTALiswoman necklaces!
This listing features a gorgeous Quartz crystal (1 3/8" tall. 7/8" wide) suspended from a brass bail on a 20" Sterling Silver chain.
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.
We list each of these necklaces individually (OOAK- One Of A Kind) and try to capture each one's unique character in our photos so you can choose the necklace that you consider to be the perfect one!
