Material
The chatoyancy in this stone gives the typically white scolecite bands of peach. The 30mm x 16mm Scolecite teardrop cabochon has been bezel set in sterling silver with an open copper back plate. The back plate has a stardust finish. This pendant comes on an 18 inch sterling silver chain or an 18 inch faux leather cord with 2 inch extender. In gemology, chatoyancy, or chatoyance or cat's eye effect, is an optical reflectance effect seen in certain gemstones. Please note that Scolecite is 5-5.5 on the Mohs Scale. The Mohs scale of mineral hardness (/moʊz/) is a qualitative ordinal scale, from 1 to 10, characterizing scratch resistance of various minerals through the ability of harder material to scratch softer material. Diamonds are 10 on the scale. Take care as gems with lower Mohs will scratch easier than those with higher.
