Silver Plated Wire Wrapped Gemstone Arrowhead Pendant Set: Carnelian, Fancy Jasper, Obsidian
This listing includes three chipped arrowhead pendants in silver plated wire wrapping. Sizes range from an average 1-1.5".
The earliest arrowheads were made of stone, and the arrowhead became a meaningful symbol in Native American culture and spirituality. This set includes the following stones:
One of the earliest favored gems, carnelian is a chalcedony that ranges from orange to reddish brown and has been used in jewelry, seals, talismans, and other ornamental objects since the early Neolithic Age. A rich, warm color, carnelian ranges from transparent to nearly opaque and can include banding, classifying it as an agate. Carnelian is a silica with a hexagonal system and a conchoidal fracture. Although not considered as precious as it once was, it is still widely used in beads and carvings.
Meaning "spotted or specked stone," jasper is a microgranular variety of quartz. Opaque in color, jasper is an impure variety of silica, with a mix of iron oxides or other organic substances causing a variety of colors. Fancy jasper can be blended or banded with assorted colors including reddish brown, mauve, cream, and green earth tones.
Although naturally occurring like minerals, obsidian is not crystalline, and its variable composition classifies it as a volcanic glass. Obsidian is formed by quickly cooling lava, and consists mainly of silicon dioxide. Its conchoidal fracture results in a sharp, smooth blade, so it was historically used to create knives and arrowheads.
This listing is for one arrowhead pendant set (3 pendants total, 1 of each clear carnelian, fancy jasper, and obsidian).
