#611 Septarian Nodule Pendant
A septarian nodule is sedimentary and a geode is igneous. A septarian nodule is composed of shale or clays, aragonite (brown color), calcite (yellow) and barite (white). Septarian nodules have been found around the world.This piece is from Russia, and it measures 1" x 1 1/4".It comes ready to wear on a waxed linen cord with slip knots tied on the ends for easy adjustment of length. My clay setting is quite durable and I do my best to not intrude into the beauty on the stone or crystal that I make wearable. Pat
My name is Pat, my wife's name is Dana and we own Miners Gems and Minerals in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, San Diego, CA .We have been in business for 40 years here in San Diego. Along the way we have learned a few things. One thing I learned and have been doing for the last 18 years is what I call Clay by Pat. The setting I make is a non firing ceramic. It has an amazing bonding agent that then hardens, so no heating is required, which could damage the gemstone that is set. After 30 minutes of building my setting and bonding to the piece, the white setting is ready for coloring. In the picture above you can see the pieces are white and I am working on the dye coloring of one. I find working on multiple pieces works best for me. After the dye sets, I then burnish the setting . Now it is ready to be worn. One of the best parts of my process is I have not found anything that I will not make in to a Pendant, though there have been many of what I call clay challenges. What you see here is what we have in our store and available for sale, so pieces come and go and I am constantly making new pieces, and if the piece you see is unavailable I probably have something similar at the shop.
