Product information "Handmade German Quartz Pendant"
This pendant was handmade from a raw quartz that we found in the waters of the Rhine. It is a clear quartz/milky quartz that shows some beautiful depth and structure that makes this pendant truly one of a kind.
Quartz Quartz is the second most common mineral in the Earth's crust and can be found nearly everywhere in many different variations. Here in Germany on the banks of the river Rhine, we mostly find milky quartz. The white colour of the milky quartz is caused by inclusions of gas or fluid and it is the most common variety of quartz. But even those common milky quartz pieces can show astonishingly beautiful structures and colour variations and often contain parts that are crystal clear.
How its made Each of our pendants was crafted with love and care by hand and many of our stones were collected locally by us or friends of us on river banks, in gravel pits or in quarry's in different locations in Germany.
Some of our stones are simple beach pebbles, but with a bit of work and polishing, even a common beach pebble can become a true jewel! We cut, grind and polish our stones by hand in our small workshop in the beautiful German town of Bad Honnef. To be able to work the hard stones and achieve a high quality, we use diamond coated saw blades, grinding wheels and and drills to work our stones.
