Carnelian is a smooth, lustrous stone (a type of chalcedony) that is able to be carved into many interesting shapes; here a flower design is found on both sides of the pendant. Rectangular carnelian beads are flanked by blue-dyed jasper beads and white mother-of-pearl beads. The style is classy and sophisticated; metal parts are copper. Comes in a nice white gift box with ARThouse logo; includes 3" extender chain. Handmade at Style ARThouse in Maryland; see matching bracelet and earrings also called "Carved in Carnelian".
