alternating in this necklace
with the pyrite rectangles, the
czech art glass rectangles are
striped and amber colored on
one side and "ghosted"
(blue/yellow)
on their reverse.
you can wear the necklace either as it falls, or you can arrange the czech art glass
to suit your mood. more amber and stripes? more ghosting?
the photos reveal the various effects that can be achieved.
brassy in color,
metallic in luster,
pyrite is also
known as
fool's gold.
the birthstone for november,
citrine is named after the french
word for lemon (citron) and is often
incorrectly called quartz topaz or
citrine topaz.  most citrine comes
from south america. in ancient
times, citrine was revered as a gift
of the sun and was believed
to be a powerful antidote
to a viper's venom.
in this necklace the faceted citrine
rondelles act as "spacers"
between the pyrite and
czech art glass rectangles.
the penny and
the dime (above
and at right)
are shown to
indicate the size
of the various
elements in this
necklace.
