The Chrysanthemum stone is a gemstone, a wonderment of nature. Originally, discovered in Japan, the stone is now found in China and USA. Formed millions of years ago when a large deposit of organic mud occurred in the sea. The calcite and celestite deposits at lower levels grew outward creating the formations in limestone. An organic gemstone!! It reminds of a star bursting in the skies above. Or fireworks, or a flower, or the mysteries of the black hole in the universes. This great necklace can be worn everyday, by man or woman, it is simple, makes a statement, yet it has purpose. The Chrysanthemum Pendant is phenominal!
