Lovingly hand-mined and polished Lewisian, complimented with sparkling Garnets and set in 925 sterling silver, with a design reminiscent of the trickling, meandering 'easan' (Scottish Gaelic for waterfalls) which flow down from Scotland's hills and mountain ranges.
Pendant measures 38x20x8mm including bail. Lewisian gemstones measures roughly 31x19, and the Garnets are approximately 2mm rounds. Pendant comes in a Two Skies presentation box, and with a complimentary premium 18"-20" sterling silver rope twist chain.
At Two Skies, we think that "To own a piece of Scottish Lewisian is to own a piece of Scotland itself. By purchasing this beautiful piece you are connected not just to Scotland but to its age old traditions and folklore."
Lewisian & Garnet Sterling Silver 'Easan' Pendant
Lewisian comes from the Isles of Lewis, Harris and North Highlands. It is collected from the ancient bedrock of Scotland and is one of the oldest rocks in the world, up to 3 billion years old (3,000,000,000 years!). It is a unique composition of many minerals including Feldspar, Epidote and Quartz, all of which are part of the "Lewisian Gneiss" complex. Lewisian has been treasured for thousands of years by the clans of Scotland. It was used by the Megalithic cultures to construct monuments such as the Callanish stone circle on the Isle of Lewis
