A simple Basalt pendant with sterling silver and gold (1) pebbles; such a beautiful contrast. Wear it everyday to remind you of the unique and sandy beaches along the South Shore of Lake Superior.
Basalt is by far the most common rocks you will find on Lake Superior’s North and South Shore beaches. It is one of the four rock-types that make up the basement bedrock of the earth’s crust. Basically it is lava that cooled quickly on the surface. Each one has a distinctive shape and in a variety of shades of color from blush-black to grey.
That quick cooling is what caused it to be dense, very fine grained (tiny crystals) and smooth - although the smooth surface is also due to glacial grinding & Gitche Gumee tossing it about for eons. That Basalt rock you hold in your hand (or wear on your body) is over a billion years old!
Properties: Basalt is a stone that brings stability, raises energy levels, and promotes courage. It opens you up to creativity and gives you the courage to follow your bliss.
