This Rock Crystal pendant, with its teardrop shape hanging elegantly from your neck, radiates purity and natural reflections. This magnificent stone, which has been chosen with the greatest care by Minerals Kingdom, can be mounted on a steel, gold, gold-plated or silver-plated chain, or on a leather cord. Rich in nature, Rock Crystals exist in different hues: colourless, smoky, coloured and even translucent. The beauty of this diamond-like mineral has thus been able to withstand the centuries. Not only will it majestically enhance the wearer’s looks but this dazzlingly faceted tiara is also renowned today for its undeniable lithotherapeutic virtues.
Composed of silicon dioxide and oxygen, this widespread mineral belongs to the quartz family. The name Rock Crystal comes from the fact that it is created within the cracks and crevices of rocks which are rich in silica. The history of this ancestral stone dates back to before Christ. The Mycenaeans already enjoyed engraving and sculpting this crystallised stone. As for the Romans, they turned this earthly element into countless jewels such as bracelets, rings, necklaces and beads. As for the Egyptians, Rock Crystal led them to fashion ewers (vases intended to contain water) decorated with embossed spirals. Later, during the Renaissance, magnificent Rock Crystal vessels came out of the Milanese and Florentine workshops. The Louvre Museum has inherited these precious masterpieces and presents them in the Apollo Gallery.
Rock Crystal is found all over the world, particularly in Brazil, Madagascar, the European Alps, the United States and the Himalayas. Not only is this stone as pleasant to wear as it is to look at but it also makes the happiness of therapists who find its use in lithotherapy indispensable.
