This vibrant green bracelet consists of green Fluorite, Aventurine, Jade and Swarovski Crystals. I designed and crafted this “hand full of grapes” after being inspired by Marvin Gaye’s classic. Adorned with sterling silver components, exquisite clasp in particular, the bracelet measures 21cm in total length. Please note size indicates stringing circumference, not inner circumference which is dictated by the size of the stones (hence fits 16-18 cm wrist).
FLUORITE- is a widely occurring mineral. Fluorite comes in a wide range of colours and has subsequently been dubbed "the most colourful mineral in the world". The most common colours are purple, green, yellow, less common are pink, red, white, brown, black and nearly every shade in between. Colour banding is commonly present.The ancient Egyptians used Fluorite to carve statues and scarabs and Chinese have used it in carvings for over 300 years. Fluorite is said to absorb and neutralize negative vibrations and excess energy.
AVENTURINE-is a granular semi-translucent to mostly opaque quartz stone with mica flecks, which give the stone sparkling effect. The most common colour of Aventurine is green, but it may also be orange, brown, yellow, blue, or gray. The name Aventurine comes from Italian a ventura meaning chance. Green Aventurine is known as the “Stone of Opportunity,” it is believed to attract prosperity and wealth.
JADE- is an opaque semiprecious gemstone which is usually found in shades of green, but can be also found in shades of white, grey, black, yellow, and orange and in delicate violet tones such as lavender and rose. As early as 3000 B.C. Jade was known in China as 'yu', the 'royal gem'. It has always had a very special significance in the history, art and culture of the Chinese empire. In ancient Egypt, jade was admired as the stone of love, inner peace, harmony and balance. Nowadays it is regarded as a stone of serenity and a traditional charm for gardeners, Jade is said to ensure bountiful harvest.
CRYSTAL - is a fine, high-quality glass invented in 17th century in England. In order to be considered crystal rather than simple glass, the product must contain at least 10% lead oxide. The lead oxide is attributed to providing the glass with extraordinary qualities of brilliance.
