Malachite and Silver necklace
Malachite has been used as a gemstone for thousands of years and can be seen in Palaces. Malachites most striking physical property is its green colour banding from light to dark. It is a copper carbonate found by copper near deposits mainly mined in Africa today but formally Russia. This necklace comprises of short Malachite barrels in a variety of lengths from between approximately 12mm and 8mm in length and 5mm in diameter. I have used silver twiggs to add contrast to the green. Total length 46cm.
