INNER GROWTH Sterling Silver Necklace with rare Fuschite included Quartz
Regular priceSale price
Lovingly handmade from recycled sterling silver, this necklace holds a very rare Quartz crystal specimen with an inclusion of a green Fuscite phantom. Fuchsite, also known as chrome mica, is a chromium rich variety of the mineral muscovite and is traditionally associated with the Heart. Phantom inclusions occur within a crystal when a delay has occurred in their growth, giving time for another mineral to settle on the outer surface of the young crystal, so long as it remains undisturbed. In time, when the conditions are just right, the original crystal begins to grow again, perfectly aligned with it's original structural framework, unaffected by it's mineral hitchhiker, which becomes slowly encased within it, transforming into a ghost-like image of the younger crystal.
I have not bought any new crystals since educating myself on the sourcing and ethics of most gemstone supply chains, so this crystal is from my old stock, purchased years ago in Glastonbury, England and I believe it originally comes from Madagascar, as most crystals of this type do. 10% of the sale of this necklace will go to a charity project working to save a small school in rural Madagascar.
