This is a lovely 21" Malachite necklace with 49 stones. The stones are nicely matched, graduating in size to the smallest near the clasp and the largest in front - they are all a gorgeously marbled. It is hand strung and knotted between each stone so if the necklace breaks, you won't lose more than one stone. The clasp is sterling with the .925 stamped on it. Each stone is approximately 8-9cm round.
