K2 Raindrop Granite Pendant Necklace

K2 Raindrop Granite Pendant Necklace

Jewelry Details

This pendant necklace features a large, polished piece of the metamorphic gneiss described below. Measuring approximately 1.5 to 2 inches (3-5cm) in length, the stone is displayed in a custom-made, sterling silver bezel that is strung on a box-style chain. The chain measures 18-inches (~45cm) and is also made of sterling silver. The complete necklace comes in a decorative box and includes a small information card about the specimen. The card serves as the certificate of authenticity and can be found underneath the padded lining of the display box.

Please Note: While sizes do vary on this item due to the nature of the stone, they are all oval in shape.

About the K2 "Raindrop" Granite

The Khaplu Valley is nestled deep In the Karakorum mountains of northern Pakistan. Part of the Greater Himalayas, this range is home to the second-highest peak in the world: K2. Also known as Chhogori, the mountain rises 8,611 meters (28,251 feet), standing above other giants in the region.

These rugged mountains are composed primarily of metamorphic gneiss and granite, such as this piece. The blue “raindrops” are azurite, a soft mineral produced from weathering copper deposits. To find the two in combination is highly unusual and a puzzle that geologists are still working to unravel.
