LIGHT GREEN/YELLOW/FLUORITE/RAMONA MOORE/16

WHO ENJOYS A LEISURELY STROLL IN THE VERDANT WOODS ON A SPRING DAY?


I THINK WE ALL DO, TO LIFT OUR MOOD AND REGENERATE IN A PLACE OF SOLITUDE,

IS SOMETHING WE ALL ENJOY

THIS GROUP #16, REMINDS ME OF EXACTLY THAT - A WALK IN THE WOODS.

THE STERLING SILVER 'FACE' HAS TURQUOISE INLAY AT THE TOP OF THE HEAD.

I AM NOT SURE OF ITS COUNTRY OF ORIGIN, BUT THE TURQUOISE STONE AND FACE STYLE SEEMS CHINESE, OR TIBETAN, NOT SURE. IF YOU KNOW, LET ME KNOW.




(1) THIS TRIPLE STRAND OF AN (18") LENGTH HAS AN ARRAY OF GEMSTONES THAT ARE AMAZING.

THERE IS CHRYSOPRASE IN CARVED LEAVES, RONDELLES, AND FREE FORM.

PRASIOLITE (GREEN AMETHYST) LIGHTENS UP THIS PIECE WITH ITS ICY LIGHT GREEN.

THE RUBY IN ZOISITE ADDS A PUNCH OF TINY RED ACCENTS, AMONG ITS GREEN BACKGROUND, JUST TO KEEP IT INTERESTING.

GREEN GARNET IN BIG HEXAGONAL CHUNKS ADDS A LITTLE WEIGHT TO IT.

I THOUGHT SOME RHYOLITE CHUNKS WOULD BRING SOME YELLOW ACCENTS TO THE GREEN AND CREAM BACKGROUND, THEY ARE AMAZING.

ADD IN SOME PREHNITE AND PERUVIAN OPAL, AND YOU HAVE A PIECE THAT IS MARVELOUS!

I DECIDED TO LEAVE IT CLASP-LESS, FOR COMFORT AROUND THE BACK OF THE NECK.






(2) THIS 8 STRAND BEAUTY IS OF PERUVIAN OPAL, AT (10.5") IT IS DEFINITELY A CHOKER LENGTH.

IT IS OF SOFT RONDELLES, SO IT IS A COMFORTABLE FIT. THE COLORS RANGE FROM CLEAR AQUA TO OLIVE GREEN, AND EVERY COLOR IN BETWEEN.



(3) ONE OF MY TOP 10 FAVORITES, IS FLUORITE. IT COMES IN ALMOST EVERY COLOR.

THE GREENS, YELLOWS AND PURPLES IN THESE TWO PIECES ARE SO BRILLIANT.

THE PENDANTS ARE CHUNKY AND FULL OF COLOR SATURATION.

THE (13") HAS PLENTY OF FLUORITE HEARTS, AND A STERLING SILVER TAB 'FLOWER' CLASP.


THE FLUORITE BEADS BETWEEN THE HEARTS ARE FLUORITE FACETED RONDELLES.

STERLING SILVER BEADS ADD SOME SPARKLE.













(3) THE SECOND FLUORITE PENDANT AND BEADS ARE ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THE FIRST,

WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE CLASP. IT IS (15") IN LENGTH, AND HAS A STERLING SILVER LOBSTER CLASP. AT ONLY TWO INCHES LONGER, IT DRAPES FOR A LONGER DRESS NECKLINE.







I KNOW THE EARRINGS DO NOT MATCH, AND THAT'S OK.

SOMETIMES BREAKING OUT OF THE NORM IS EXACTLY WHAT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE NEW PATTERNS, MODES OF THINKING.

FLUORITE IN ANY COLOR ENHANCES COGNITIVE ABILITY.

IT HELPS FOCUS, AND ITS LIKE 'BRAIN FOOD' FOR ME.

WEAR SOME FOR A WHILE, YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN.


THIS LITTLE GEM HAS A MARCASITE HEART.

MARCASITE FORMS IN LITTLE PYRAMIDS, SOUNDS CRAZY, I KNOW, BUT ITS TRUE.

I THOUGHT ADDING IT TO SOME FLUORITE IN GREENS, YELLOWS AND PURPLES

WOULD BE A NICE PIECE TO WEAR.

IT IS (11"), AND HAS A STERLING SILVER TAB CLASP WITH A LIGHT GREEN CAB INLAY ON THE TOP.

I THOUGHT ADDING FROSTED QUARTZ TURTLES, SUNS AND BEARS WOULD BE FUN.

THEY CAN EASILY BE REMOVED, IF NECESSARY.









(6) THIS (12") PIECE IS A CARVED JADEITE 'DANCER'.

I DECIDED TO KEEP IT SIMPLE, AND PUT TINY GREEN AND BROWN GLASS BEADS WITH IT.

THE CLASP IS A STERLING SILVER LOBSTER CLASP.




(7) TOURMALINE, IN A DEEP, DARK GREEN, LENDS ITSELF WELL TO THIS DAINTY, 6-STRAND PIECE.

AT (10"), IT MAKES A MIGHTY STATEMENT.

VERY SMALL TUBULAR BEADS CONNECTED WITH TINY GLASS BEADS ARE WHAT MAKE IT SO VERY SPECIAL.

THE STERLING SILVER TAB 'FLOWER' CLASP SETS IT OFF BEAUTIFULLY.






THIS INTRODUCTION TO SOME OF MY FAVORITES IS A WAY FOR ME TO SHOW MY APPRECIATION FOR THE MINERAL KINGDOM. I HOPE IT HAS INSPIRED YOU TO FIND SOME FLUORITE FOR YOURSELF, OR ANY OF THE MANY OTHERS FROM THIS ARTICLE.
