PINK LIMB CASTE CHALCEDONY, a beautifully clean piece of rare Pink Chalcedony, from Turkey. Quality, clean Chalcedony in this colour is very rare. A limb cast is a psuedomorph where the original wood has been replaced by chalcedony. These pieces form when a tree was buried by ash. The wood is burned away by the hot ash and a “cast” is left. Minerals in the groundwater then permeated the cast, replacing the original organic matter and turning it to stone. This good sized pendant weights 20.45g, and the Silver work is excellent. It is %.1cm long by 3.85cm wide. This is definitely a collectors piece.
