This is a very unique and interesting necklace of ancient chalcedony beads in a soft, sky blue, combined with ancient Coquina jasper beads in earthy tones, and my own gold drops and signature serpent hook clasp.
The cool blue of the chalcedony contrasts richly with the browns and tans of the jasper, which is a fossil stone from the shells of sea beds. Also called “script stone” for its resemblance to writing, it’s a treasured material in many ancient cultures. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, fossils as talismans and medicines are considered calming to the Shen, the peaceful strength that resides in the heart.
All together, the elements of this piece create a very calming aura around the wearer, with a presence of strength and serenity.
