This pendant features what we love to call- PIZZA STONE! This piece started as a rough chunk of stone that we cut, shaped and polished ourselves. It has a copper "crust" and circular bail.
The "real" name of this stone is Leopard Skin Jasper and it comes from Mexico.
Using a process called Electroforming, we are able to "grow" copper onto the stone. Copper is deposited onto the piece over 18-36 hours using an acid bath and electricity. It's science that feels like magic!

Leopard Skin Jasper is said to provide the strength with which to take action gracefully and powerfully. This gem takes its beauty and strength from the animal it is named after and passes that power to us when we wear it. Leopardskin jasper is most closely associated with the root chakra and the astrological signs Gemini and Scorpio.
This pendant comes with an antiqued copper chain.
The copper on this piece has not been sealed; see our FAQ for more info and care tips.
