Joie de Vivre jewelry

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, unakite is an igneous rock rich in epidote, and marble is a metamorphic form of limestone. Sterling silver beads separate the rock type beads, and the pendant hangs from a dyed leather cord with sterling silver lobster clasp.

If you like the idea but would like a little shorter necklace, try rock types I!

Cost: $32.50 USD
