This pendant features a sparkly rosecut galaxy aventurine. The glittery effect in the stone is caused by graphite inclusions within. Above the stone floats a tiny textured planet, surrounded by an orbiting ring. On the back is a silhouette of planetary swirling gases; when held up to the light, these bands and swirls are visible through the stone, turning the stone into a shimmering planet. My marker's mark (BLJ) has been added to the backside of the pendant. The silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The pendant measures 1.25" tall and 0.75" wide. 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. Cleaning sterling silver can also remove oxidized patina applied to the piece, so use caution when cleaning if there is desired oxidized patina.
