This statement collection includes an exclusive Buddha Inscribed Prehnite Necklace with matching Bracelet and Pierced Earrings. Usually apple green in color, prehnite is the first mineral to be named for a person. Dutch Colonel Hendrik Von Prehn, mineralogist early governor of the Cape of Good Hope colony, discovered prehnite in what is now a province of South Africa in the early 18th century. This Buddha Inscribed Prehnite Jewelry ensemble features doublets of black frosted glass beads, inscribed with Buddha in Chinese script, to compliment the naturally occurring inclusions of black epidote in the polished and faceted 15mm prehnite nuggets. Matching prehnite dangles with stainless steel ear wires complete the Buddha Inscribed Prehnite ensemble. Hand knotted necklace and bracelet; stainless steel findings. Natural variations ensure each Buddha Inscribed Prehnite Necklace, Bracelet and Pierced Earring will be one of a kind.
