The tropical fish and the large toggle closure are made of a generic stone that has been permanently dyed black, and is sold under the name 'blackstone.'
The fish is bisected with an arrow of goldstone, a glass product that contains quartz dust.
The copper elements in the quartz give goldstone its sparkle.
The toggle measures a man-sized 45mm (1-3/4 inches) in diameter.
It closes a 17-1/2 inch strand of 10mm goldstone beads, spaced with black seed beads.
The tropical fish totem dangles about two inches below the strand.
What a great necklace for beach wear!
Naturally, it's from SPARKLE PLENTY.
