Like gum drops, gem drops are a sweet, compressed package of beautiful color and fun. Unlike gum drops, gem drops will not lead to unwanted pounds or tooth decay! The idea is simple: pair two complementary gemstones for a striking sample of natural goodness. The gemstone pendants make a fun addition to most outfits for work or play so enjoy some gem drops today!

This gem drop features a 10mm larvikite round bead and a 12mm amethyst round bead with brushed silver-plate flat squares separating the gemstones. Larvikite is visually similar to granite though higher in plagioclase (feldspar) and low in quartz. It has a schiller effect like labradorite, leading it to be called "blue labradorite" at times, but it also shows much coarser grain pattern. The pendant is paired with an elegant 18" sterling silver rope chain necklace.

Cost: $32.00 USD

Care & cleaning: Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.
