A beautiful and rare Chinese Writing Stone – a large, long gem – that I have bezel set with sterling silver and made into a pendant drop necklace.
This gemstone is sometimes called a “calligraphy stone” or a “Chinese Writing Rock”. A natural gemstone, it measures 2.75 inch X 0.33 inch and weighs 31.3 carats. The stone is hand cut and polished.
I have used black cotton cord, brown leather cord spiral wrap and vintage trade beads at the ends of the cord. The necklace is adjustable in length – from 24 inches to a choker size.
This would be a great piece of jewelry for a man or a woman.
