This gorgeous dendric agate is paired with a black star moonstone and Phish's Dirt.
I made myself one of these with my late father's birthstone, garnet- and having something to hold and wear, to channel thoughts and tears into that you can't place elsewhere- I really love mine. I'll likely do more of this concept in the future- same shape, with various stones on top, but it's been hard to come across larger dendric agates like this so most future ones will likely be a bit smaller.
The double layer is to resemble a ripple or echo, the denric agate resembles roots connecting to the earth. And I really love the way Phish wrote a song about death that is somehow soft and lighter than you'd think possible.
The stones are framed with .999 fine silver bezels, and the rest is all .925 sterling silver including the 18" oxidized chain in is strung on.
Price includes shipping with full insurance through Shipsurance.
It comes with an anti-tarnish bag for storing, and a Sunshine brand polishing cloth to keep it bright and beautiful!
I struggled with pricing this one- if using my normal pricing formula that takes into account the cost of the amount of silver and stones and the time spent on it, I'd have it at $190. (the larger dendric agates can cost a pretty penny) but because of the theme of the piece, I wanted to bump it down a bit. 🤷♀️

and of black moonstone:
An excellent stone for soothing emotional stress and anxiety. It encourages one to stay calm and grounded and not overreact in emotional and personal situations. Black Moonstone enables one to be aware of one's subconscious and allows one to consistently act from this intuition.
