Stone crabs are a Florida staple - only available during a short season and ridiculously expensive! An interesting feature of the stone crab harvest is that it's illegal for fishermen to harvest a whole crab - instead, they remove one claw and return the live crab to the water, where it can regenerate a new one in about a year. 

This particular stone crab claw was found off the coast of Hudson, Florida - it wasn't eaten, or else it would be smashed to bits. In some cultures, the crab is a symbol of good luck, as well as resiliency and unwillingness to give up.

It has been electroplated in copper and given a dark patina to mimic the crabs signature black-tipped claws. It is adorned with a gorgeous blue labradorite stone to represent the sea.

This piece measures about 1.5 inches and comes on an 18-inch antiqued copper chain. If you prefer a different length 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.
