This is a new stone for us, Alligator Quartz. Alligator Quartz in mined in Brazil. Formed in groups these crystals give off the appearance and texture of an alligators hide. These A+ grade pendants average 30mm in length and 12mm in diameter. No two are alike, but they are all exceptional. The bail is silver with a hint of rhodium to help prevent tarnishing. We took the photo with some of our leather cord from Leather Cord USA. We think the leather really enhances the earthy natural look of this stone. These Quartz stones are known for their powerful healing qualities.
