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.
All except our smaller gemstones are hand-cut and polished in our Merrickville studio.
