Joie de Vivre jewelry

r o c k   t y p e s   I 

Whether as a teaching aid in a geology lab or a fun accessory for everyday, this necklace is a great way to visualize the three rock types (sedimentary, igneous, metamorphic) in the rock cycle. Limestone is a hard sedimentary rock rich in calcite, rhyolite is an igneous rock rich in silica, and tiger iron is a metamorphic rock rich in hematite and jasper. Each stone has a sterling silver head pin that attaches it to a sterling silver link chain necklace with lobster clasp.

If you like the idea but would like a single vertical pendant, try rock types II!

Cost: $46.00 USD

  • limestone bead

The pendants and chain should be robust to most hard tugs and pulls, but a very sharp yank could break the thin chain. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
