You're not a man, you're a mushroom! - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
This dark blue and bright green piece of polished opalized wood has been set into a flat mushroom design with a prong setting, designed to maximize the amount of stone showing in the piece.
Opalized wood is a type of petrified wood that is composed of opal rather than chalcedony or another mineral material. One of the most common and best geologic environments for the formation of petrified wood is a forest buried by a volcanic ashfall. In this situation the ash buries the plants and protects them from decay and insect attack.
This piece measures just over an inch tall and about 1.25 inches wide, and comes on an 18-inch antiqued copper chain. If you would prefer a different length (or style) of chain or leather cord, please include a note at checkout.
All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
