A stunning faux malachite stone necklace, the necklace is fashioned from glass beads in a lovely swirled green malachite design. The necklace is beautifully designed with no two beads the same as you would find on a natural malachite necklace - ( natural malachite is very easily damaged due to its softness and susceptibility to heat, this faux malachite necklace has all of the stunning appearance of malachite but without the inherent weaknesses of the stone ). The beads are strung in a graduated size pattern with green seed bead dividers between each malachite bead. The necklace is fastened with a barrel clasp. Circa 1950's.
