Mother of Pearl Moon Necklace w/ Apatite, Turquoise, and Sterling Silver
17 inches total length. 2 inches extension
Turquoise is said to be the oldest gemstone known to man in human history. Throughout time, this stone was honored as a symbol of wisdom and nobility. To some cultures it was even considered to a symbol of immortality. From the Ancient Egyptians to the Native Americans, Turquoise was considered a sacred stone of power, luck and protection. The blue-green hues of the stone and its light weight make it a versatile stone for carved figures, jewelry pendents and other accessories. While it is a more common stone, it is still treasured by many cultures today.
Apatite is a mineral that sits at a five on the Mohs Scale. Most commonly seen in green tones, it can also bee found in yellows, pinks, browns, violets, and blues. Apatite crystals typically grow in hexagonal (six sided) shapes. The name apatite is derived from Greek meaning “to deceive” likely because it was often mistaken for other, more valuable gemstones, like peridot, tourmaline, and emerald.
