I love a good ceremonial fire. The flames draw me in, offering me all sorts of wisdom and messages. When the heated stones come into the lodge for a sweat, they glow with the same flames from within.
These stunning, rough cut Condor Agate stones remind me of those glowing lodge stones. The multi-hued agates are separated by Czech glass cathedral beads. At the neck, Czech drop beads intertwine to form a comfortable chain at the neck, coming to a close with a hand stamped copper toggle.
Hanging from all this lusciousness is a stunning Fire Cherry Quartz pendant. It glows from within with golden flames, drawing your attention and focus just like that ceremonial fire.
The necklace is complimented by a pair of earrings made with the same Condor Agate rough stones. The earrings have a drop of 2 1/4 inches, and hang from silver plated ear wires.
The necklace measures approximately 21 inches, with the average agate stone about 1 inch by 1 1/2 inches. The Fire Cherry Quartz pendant measures approximately 1 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches.
