Native American Sterling Silver Thulite Pendant #1 measures approximately 1 7/16" x 15/16" (36mm x 24mm) without the silver loop and bale and weighs 10.8 grams. The back of this pendant is covered in this Sterling Silver setting. This a beautiful Thulite cabochon that weighs 5.3 grams. It has been set in Sterling Silver by Virgil Nez of the Navajo/Diné tribe. These pieces are signed with Virgil's mark. I picked this cabochon. Extraordinarily set in Sterling Silver in USA. Made exclusively for MetaphysicalRealm1.com.
The backs are often covered in Diné jewelry. Sawdust is often used to keep the crystal in place, and that is why very often the backs are covered. Virgil does some open backs as well if the crystal needs to have light shine through it.
Hardness: 6.0 - 6.5
Origin: Probably Norway
