Desert Fire: Orange Agate, White Magnesite, & Turquoise Blue - OOAK Bold Southwestern Statement Necklace

Bold. Vibrant. One of a Kind.

This one-of-a-kind necklace is bold, vibrant, and statement making.  It features seven free-form agate slices separated by goldstone.  White magnesite and  hand-cut carnelian add interest to the design and echo the colors in the agate slices.  Pops of turquoise blue and antique copper complete the design.
The orange agate slices are striking and each stone is unique.  The white magnesite has a heavy brown matrix and looks amazing next to the rich orange carnelian chunks.


This necklace is of substantial weight and will bring a touch of Southwestern glamour, while evoking the colors of a stunning desert landscape, to your decollete.

Agate is a protective stone and increases courage and self-esteem.  Carnelian is also a courage stone and it opens one's heart, and brings joy into one's life.  With the calming properties of magnesite, this necklace has a nice, energetic balance (source here).

The blue turquoise chips add contrast to the necklace.  I've had these blue chips for a long time, and only a limited amount remain.  They are a rich turquoise blue and may be either natural turquoise or dyed howlite.

The necklace closes with an antique copper lobster clasp and can be adjusted from 21" to 23".  "Desert Fire" is a versatile matinee length and will look great for evening, office, or casual wear.  There is a replica Ottoman coin charm at the end of the extender, which brings a touch of the East to this Southwestern infused necklace.
