This is a beautiful piece of malachite, it does have a slight fracture in it and that is why this piece has been backed to stabilize that fracture so it should not create any issues whatsoever with wearing it, the piece has been wrapped in 22 gauge solid sterling silver wire. The piece measures approximately 1" inch (2 cm) across at the widest point and approximately 3 1/2" inches (8.89 cm) from top to bottom.
This piece will come on a 27" inch black silk cord unless otherwise specified. I can place it on a 16" or 18" sterling silver chain for an additional $10 which can be purchased in a separate listing.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please don't hesitate to contact me and thank you so very much for looking!
