We wire-wrap all of our bismuth crystals to protect them from damage. Drilling weakens the structural integrity of the crystal & makes it susceptible to shattering, while gluing can crack off, or shield areas of the crystal surface from exposure to the atmosphere, which is crucial to allowing the surface to oxidize in a natural way over time. Our pendants are made to last!
Bismuth is naturally a silvery-white color as a fresh crystal but acquires it's colorful, iridescent surface due to it's exposure to air and oxidation of it's surface. The spiral stair stepped structure of a bismuth crystal is the result of a higher growth rate around the outside edges than on the inside edges. The variations in the thickness of the oxide layer that forms on the surface of the crystal causes different wavelengths of light to interfere upon reflection, thus displaying a rainbow of colors. WOW!
This gorgeous handcrafted pendant was made with a sparkling and prismatic bismuth crystal, wrapped in genuine 0.925 Sterling silver-filled wire. This pendant, measures 53x21x16mm (2.1" x 0.8" x 0.6") and comes suspended on a 18"-long silver chain (braided black leather cord substitution available upon request) which, closes with a lobster-claw clasp. This is truly a one-of-a-kind piece, since each and every bismuth crystal is unique and it was wrapped to echo the dimensions and morphology of the crystal. What a conversation piece!
Your pendant will arrive safely in a jeweler's gift box, which will be inserted into a padded bubble envelope. You may add a custom message which I will print in a lovely script font and insert within the gift box, if you wish. I can also gift wrap this item for no additional charge, if desired.
