The agate slice is held in place by silver stalactites and stalagmites. The bat is raised in front of the stone, flying out of the crystal cave into the night.
The agate slices has a plethora of swirls in black, grey, and white. It is held in place by silver, cut to mimic cave formations. The cavity in the stone forms the cave, with the jagged crystals inside forming the stalactites and stalagmites. A bat is mounted in front of the stone, giving the pendant extra dimension. The backside of the pendant is adorned with stalagmites and a flying bat. There is a hidden bail on the backside for a chain and it is stamped with my maker's mark (BLJ). All of the silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The raised points have been polished to shine, while the low points retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. The pendant measures 1.75" tall and 1.25" wide at the widest point. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver.

A few notes on caring for oxidized sterling silver: oxidized patina on sterling silver isn't particularly durable to long-term exposure to water (like bathing or swimming) or a lot of scrubbing, as friction is the way to polish silver to shine. Constant exposure to tasks such as hand washing, bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc., will slowly wear away the oxidized patina leaving a shiny silver finish.
