Red Moss and Marcasite Terrain

75.00

The metallic mineral Marcasite grew through this clear agate in a delicate spire formation called tube agate. As though they’re floating, these maroon colored tendrils shoot and fan out through the slightly blue-green tinted agate in an elegant dance. The top, 5mm stone, is a Red Dendrite (Moss) Agate with blue-green tinted milky agate that contains a craze of Quartz Crystal Druzy. The scene is set back into the ground by way of carved Fine, Sterling Silver, and Copper in a topographic terrain.

The Marcasite Tube Agate is left open backed in its Fine Silver setting to let the light shine through. The base of the piece is custom made, mixed metal ‘Terrane’ (not misspelled) by which Fine Silver, Sterling Silver, and Copper are heated and hammered until they are combined into sheet metal. The bail loops are Sterling Silver as well as the hook and loop closure on the 1.2mm Greek leather cord. These stones were sourced in Oregon, hand polished, and the setting fabricated from scratch by Karen Britt. Each piece is a one of a kind piece of art, because no two stones are the same and the settings are created by hand, no two pieces are the same (even the earrings). It should be mentioned that all stones are used in their natural state; never dyed or heated to change their appearance. All the metals used are either recycled or fair, humane trade verified and all components used in the jewelry will return to the earth leaving no footprint. Thank you for enjoying the art.
