The snake chain of this necklace is signed 925 Italy. The beautiful filigree back (see picture for close-up) White Spinel gemstone briolette cross pendant is signed 925 Thai ANB. White Spinel is a precious gemstone. A pure spinel is white, as is the case with this pendant; but it can be found in many different colors, such as red, pink and black. Red Spinel is also known for replicating rubies as a more economic way of jewelry-making. The white spinel is rare and, "relatively unknown to the common consumer," according to GemTradeNet. Like cubic Zirconia, White Spinel has also been used as a cheaper solution instead of diamonds. Most White Spinel is mined in Burma, Sri Lanka and Africa. Both the White Spinel and cubic Zirconia are gemstones; however, White Spinel is a natural gemstone; while cubic Zirconia is man-made. Measurements Pendant Length: 1-3/4 inches (including the bail) Pendant Width: 1-1 /4 inches Pendant Diameter: 1/4 inch Necklace Length: 18 inches Necklace Width: 3 mm Total Weight: 17.3 g This is a truly beautiful example of high quality sterling silver jewelry in Art Nouveau style. You will not be disappointed, as the White Spinel gems are throwing a spectacular fireworks of light. NCKL WS1 "The most famous of White Spinels in recorded history is the Great White Spinel of Kandy, a city in central Sri Lanka (Ceylon). It's recorded weight was 71.25 Carat, and in 1803 it was set in gold, surrounded by Rubies, and was presented by Boldoc Swamie, the King of Kandy at that time, to a Major in Her majesty's regiments. Due to misbehavior, the aforementioned Major was later court-martialled and kicked out of the army, leaving him with no income to support his wife and children. He therefore sold the Great White Spinel and it disappeared for almost a century. It reappeared again in the nineteenth century at an auction at the French Court. However, the sale did not go through and to this day this great stone has yet to have been re-discovered. In today's gem marketplace, the Great White Spinel has an estimated value in excess of US$1,000,000. Spinels are associated with love, and help the wearer to put their ego aside, and become devoted to another person. The Spinel also encourages passion and is said to increase the duration of one's life. The White Spinel has a hardness of approximately 8 on a scale of one to 10. According to Emporia.edu, Spinel is "one of the hardest minerals in nature." Diamonds have a hardness of 10."
