Starburst Jasper Pearls Necklace, Chunky Handmade Gemstone Jewelry

Item Description

The spectacular semi precious gemstones used in the one of a kind MOTHER NATURE’S STARS handmade necklace look like brilliant sprays of stars or fireworks.  Although the gemstone is called starburst jasper (also chrysanthemum jasper and spider jasper), it is actually not a jasper at all but a type of rhyolite formed during volcanic activity.  The star patterns are large crystals that were created during the slow cooling of lava.  Each of the seven gemstones used in the artisan necklace is covered in starburst patterns, front and back, contrasting exquisitely against a darker background in various shades of brown.  To add even more beauty, each piece of the somewhat chunky, flattened jasper is large faceted on the edges and has a high, glossy shine, perfect to catch and reflect the light.  Sterling silver daisy spacers frame each end of the jasper.  An eye-catching necklace, indeed!
To add more than a touch of radiance to the necklace and to complement the colors of the starburst jasper perfectly, freshwater potato pearls separate each piece of starburst jasper and finish the back of the necklace.  The warm, coppery color of the pearls range from a more golden shades to some a more orange-y look.  They are called potato pearls since they are not perfectly round, most are more oblong, and some have ridges, adding wonderful texture to the necklace design.  A hammered sterling silver hook clasp adds an elegant finish.  Created for the woman who loves unique gemstone and artisan handmade jewelry, the MOTHER NATURE’S STARS necklace was carefully designed and created by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

Starburst jasper (rhyolite) is known as a stone of harmonious transformation and change.  Pearls are used to spread loving vibrations; they promote sincerity, truth and loyalty.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
