Steampunk Bismuth Crystal Pendant with Rainbow Moonstone. Heather Jordan Heather Jordan Jewelry
   
This handcrafted steampunk pendant was made with a vivid, multi-colored bismuth crystal, wrapped in solid, Sterling silver wire and features upcycled vintage watch parts and faceted rainbow moonstone beads, set in delicate herringbone weaves. The wire was oxidized naturally with egg yolk, then sealed in clear lacquer to resist tarnish and preserve the aged finish of the piece over time. The pendant, measures 51x32x18mm (2.0» X 1.3» X 0.7») and comes suspended on your choice of chain. 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.

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 piece comes in a luxurious, black velvet jeweler's box, contained in a cardboard outer shell (so you can wrap the box without damaging the velvet); perfect for gift-giving. This is an heirloom-quality piece you can treasure for many years to come. It ships fully-insured and with international tracking, for your convenience and peace of mind.

*Coins are shown for scale and will not be included with the jewelry.
**Comes with a signed certificate of authenticity, filled in & signed by the artist; photo of the piece & materials are listed on the reverse side of the card.
