We love learning about the gemstones we incorporate in our designs.
"K2 jasper is named after a mountain in the Karakoram Range near the border between Pakistan and China. K2, also known as "Mount Godwin Austen," is the second highest mountain in the world. The azurite granite is found in colluvium near the base of the mountain, in a very remote area visited by very few people."* It's recent discovery also amazed the geological world as the bright blue of the azurite is rarely found in granite.
The brilliant blue of the Azurite is a dramatic contrast to the white, speckled granite in a hand-crafted, 11/4 by 5/8-inch sterling silver pendant featuring 22 carats of AAA+quality and all natural K2 jasper. Named after the mountain range where it's is found, Karakorum, is suspended on an 18-inch sterling silver chain.
