INDIAN PAINT STONE PENDANT WITH COPPER & SILVER CHAIN
This beautiful heart-shaped Indian Paint Stone Pendant is going to capture your attention for sure! I left it in it’s natural shape....that of a human heart! It has a lovely design on it...in my mind it looks like a lady and a dog with a bird hovering over the dog’s head! Use your imagination and see what you come up with! It is wrapped with copper wire and is hung from a hand-made hammered copper ring chain, which is held together with silver rings. The two metals are great together.
The Pendant is approximately 3.08” long by 2.38” wide at its widest and longest points. The chain is approximately 27” and adjusts to 32”. Of course it can be adjusted to whatever length is best for you, upon your request.
This type of material was originally found in Death Valley California before it became a national park. It is now found in old collections since no new material can be collected in a National Park. I am not certain it is true jasper, but it is called that. It is a sedimentary material that is at least partially silicified. It is softer than most jaspers and does not take a final high polish. It has nice patterns and some great coloring and it polishes up to be a lovely matte finish. There are veins of hematite that run through some of it and hemitite polishes to a mirror finish that almost looks like silver.
Jasper is derived from the Anglo-French "jaspre", meaning "spotted stone". Jasper is usually formed from old sediments (or volcanic ash flows) that have been glued (and at times replaced) with silica.
Flow patterns of the original material are often easy to see. Many jaspers are known as picture jasper because they contain what appear to be small images of sand dunes, mountains, plains, and even sky. Since the original materials were likely cross bedded sediments, they often contain the structure they mimic.
