Our subtly stunning Chalcedony Dome Ring is a size 9.5, with marcasites and light emerald green chalcedony stones. In gold-plated brass, with good-luck 4 leaf clover, sparkling grey marcasites and side flourishes. The wide round dome narrows down to a simple band.
Chrome chalcedony contains chromium, normally seen in two of the most coveted gems in the world: alexandrite & emerald. Chromium, in small amounts, gives these stones their unique shades of green.
Marcasite was used for jewelry in ancient times in Greece and Egypt. Cleopatra herself was said to have worn marcasite. Incans also used both marcasite and pyrite in their jewelry, or even in houseware items for ritual sun worship. Marcasite jewelry has been found in burial chambers all over South America.
