This rare Priday Plume Agate was cut to highlight the plume patterning within the stone. The top of the triangle is transparent so I cut out the back of the pendant to let the light through. Unfortunately the photo does not adequately reflect the distinctive translucent patterning. The contemporary design is Sterling Silver with a 20" Sterling silver chain. The pendant is 2.25" long from the top of the bail and 2.5" inches at the widest point.
When there is a lot of volcanic or hot springs activity, various types of oxides form patterns that look like feathers - called plumes, and vegetation - called dendrites. Most of the plume agates I use, such as Priday Plume Agate or Graveyard Plume Agate, are from Oregon, USA. I purchase them in a slab form from ethical hand miners and then cut them myself in shapes that feature the plumes and colours.
The Proud Priday Plume Pendant is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
