Concrete pendant no.421
Medallion made in concrete by a Quebec artist. Micro crystals are inserted inside the jewelry creating perfect small quartz crystal figures.
Quartz crystal tips are natural and authentic and they have not undergone any transformation.
Provenance of the Cristal du Lac mine site, Saguenay Lac-Saint-Jean (Quebec)
Size of the pendant: 4,5 cm x 3,5 cm
chain: 24 in.
The pendant includes the pewter chain.
The points are extracted in a traditional way by a crystal prospector. When collecting Crystals from the mountainside, prospectors make sure to remove them with the utmost care. No blasting is used on the Cristal du Lac site.
To extract the crystals, we must first hammer the granite on both sides of a fault with a high quartz content, using small tools such as punch and sledgehammer in order to free it thoroughly. Once the entire cavity is uncovered, one can access the collection of quartz crystals.
The growth of the crystals is 10 years for 000cm in length, which materialized some 1 million years ago.
