Angel Fish Amethyst from Uruguay - It's Humungous! (15.91mm 12.98ct ) in a Sterling Silver Filigree Pendant and 16-18 in 2mm SS Chain
The Angel Fish! This is an Enormous Amethyst, Untreated, and Sourced from Uruguay! a VERY Rare Red-Purple stone ALMOST at 13ct (12.98) and ALMOST 16mm (15.91mm) did I mention the color is AWESOME. Cutting this stone was intense! Watching it get born from the Rough, a natural Crystal Point (see the pictures) reminded me once again just how impressive and beautiful Mother Earth can be!
It is set in Sterling Silver, a Filigree Style Pendant, making this impressive stone look even larger! The point (Pavilion) is free, helping the stone to capture and reflect the light.
The chain is impressive as well! 2mm in diameter, it's 16 inches in length with a 2 inch chain extender!
