This original design is a sterling silver Angel Dog pendant with an 8 mm Aventurine sphere. The Dog measures 1.25 inches (28 mm) from head to feet and 1/2 inch (12 mm) from side to side. Actual weight is 4.5 grams. The Aventurine is naturally quarried in India. Aventurine is almost identical in geological properties to Green Jade but with specks of Mica visible. The detail on this pendant is on the front and the back. The stone is permanently retained by an upraised paw as if playing with a ball. This pendant hangs comfortably from the black satin cord provided but is also perfectly flat on the bottom and stands on its own. Thank you for visiting.
