Raw Crystal Ornament // Amethyst Christmas Ornament // Amethyst and Copper Holiday Decoration // Boho Christmas // Raw Amethyst Crystal
This listing is for one ornament.
The raw amethyst points are set in a heavy copper electroforming bail.
Choose from the large (2-3" stone) or small (1.5-2" stone)
Each stone will be as unique as you are, just the way mother nature made them.
Hang from the 2-3" organic hemp tie.
Electroforming is the process of building up copper deposits on any object. The process can be very slow and it almost has a mind of its own. Sometimes there are striations in the copper, sometimes pits, sometimes there are little copper spheres. The results are always beautiful and unexpected making each piece entirely unique. Each piece had been cleaned up by hand and finished in the tumbler. The copper is absolutely raw... no added chemicals or sealants.
To maintain the finish as long as possible, avoid prolonged exposure to water as well as harsh chemicals. The copper will oxidize and darken over time giving it a warm deep finish. This is natural and every oxidation is unique to the person who wears it and the environment in which they live. The copper grows with you. You can bring back the original sheen by gently rubbing it with a soft polish cloth. Greening may happen. It doesn't happen to everyone. I leave the metals raw to avoid causing any reactions to additional chemicals.
