Carnelian Charm Bangle
Part of the Stick Flower series, this 10 gauge bangle features a shiny gumdrop of a carnelian cabochon, set in sterling and fine silver.
This and the other 4 charms feature whimsical stick flowers. For this piece, each charm has a variation of the shape on it, and the back of the cabochon has the same motif. This bracelet will jingle and jangle so nicely on your wrist!
This bracelet is sized to fit an average wrist.
Carnelians are prized for their lovely translucence, and get their reddish brown to orange colour from the presence of iron oxides in the stone. They are included on birthstone lists for July and August, as well as for the Zodiac sign of Virgo.
Carnelian is a fairly hard stone, and like other quartz based stones has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. For contrast, diamonds are a 10 on this scale, while amber sits around a 2. Carnelian is somewhat light sensitive, and exposure to intense light will cause the colour to change. Cleaning carnelian pieces an ultrasonic cleaner is not recommended; please use the silver polishing cloth provided with your order.
This item is one of a kind,and cannot be sized. If you are looking for something special, let me know and we can work together to design your perfect piece!
