Fancy Victorian Style Miss Moffet and Silver Pendant
Have you ever seen natural Spiderweb Miss Moffet Variscite from Nevada? This is some of the most beautiful material in the Turquoise market and pretty hard to come by. This handmade Spiderweb Miss Moffet and Silver Pendant by John Hartman is amazing and focuses on two top gem grade, natural, Spiderweb matrix Miss Moffet Variscite cabochons from Nevada, USA. This material is absolutely stunning and looks very close to high grade Damele Variscite. In the old days this material would have been sold as Turquoise. Variscite is a sister mineral to Turquoise and has the same mineral make up but has no copper present. The two stones in this Spiderweb Miss Moffet and Silver Pendant were cut from the same vein of natural Miss Moffet Variscite. These AAA grade gemstones are set into the Sterling Silver amulet with fancy Victorian filigree bezels. The stones are surrounded by bead designs, cable designs and repose designs. The back of the Spiderweb Miss Moffet and Silver Pendant features a sand stone texture and more intricate filigree designs. This all hangs from a matching bale that will accommodate an Omega chain or large silver chain. This piece will definitely be a highlight in any sophisticated Turquoise Jewelry collectors stash. Artisan handmade in Durango, Colorado USA, this silver amulet features the American Jewelry hallmark “Durango Silver .925 J. Hartman”.
