Bracelet with verdelites - green tourmalines and pyrites. The stones are suspended on a subtle silk cord. The finishing elements are made out of a 14-karat gold alloy.

The verdelite is a beautiful green gem, also known as the green tourmaline. The first recorded tourmaline was a green crystal discovered in 1554 by a Spanish explorer, nevertheless tourmalines was confused with other gems until the 1800s, when it was recognised as a group of its own. Known mining sites include Brazil, Madagascar and Tanzania.

The name “pyrite” comes from the Greek words pyrites lithos, meaning “stone which strikes fire”. The ancient Greeks discovered, that when a hard object was struck with pyrite  sparks were produced. In times gone by, pyrite was used to spark gunpowder in firearms. Pyrites are mined, among others, in Spain, Italy, Peru and Chile.

Bracelet length: 18cm

Due to the fact that each Elfjoy bracelet is hand-made, as a single copy, made of natural stones, it may be slightly different from the one shown in the picture. This does not mean, however, that it will be any less charming.
