Arkansas Quartz and brass casing pendant

Wanting to keep this beautiful Arkansas Quartz crystal as it’s focal point, I trimmed this 40 cal. S&W shell and cleaned it up a bit.
The total pendant (shell and quartz) is 1.06 inches long and with the brass wire bail it is 1.35″. The quartz point (and a nice point at that) is about 5/8″ long and about 5/16-3/8″ wide.

The bail is bare brass wire and the chain and findings are also brass as it’s base metal and have an antique brass finish. Chain is 20″ long.


Our guest rock for this photo. The rock is copper ore from the Blue Wing Mine in NC. It has some nice greens that is mostly chrysocolla (some malachite as well) showing on the exterior.
