Dancing star by drakonaria Dancing star by drakonaria
Another military dog tag stylized pendant with a beautiful Friedrich Nietzsche's quote about creativity. I really love this quote. The pendant is made of fine silver, sterling silver and the stone is star sapphire, which in strong light shows beautiful, moving star (you can see it in the second photo). Reserved.

It would've been cool if you had the original German on the back of this. :)

You mean it's a synthetic star sapphire, right? The real ones are extremely rare & expensive.

This is a lovely piece. Very elegant & lady like.

No,it's not a synthethic stone. It's not so simple with star sapphires. Synthetic stones are for example so called Linde stars, but it's not this. This is natural star sapphire, but with enhanced effect of the star, by the process of diffusion. These stones are not so expensive as not treated star sapphires, which, as you wrote are extremely expensive, but are much more expensive than synthetics. This is similar situation like with emeralds which are treated in many ways (enhancing colour, saturating with oil and so on) but are still emeralds.

Ahhh. Ok. I was checking to see if you were trying to pass it off as one. Sorry, but so many do so. Especially on sites where not many at all are aware of certain processes. It's lovely work.
