Shouldn't the back be as pretty as the front?

I know that's the case with dresses, so why not jewelry. The back is the part that touches you. These two pendants are part of a group of Chrysocolla jewelry I just listed in my Etsy shop. I'm started adding some words to the backs of my pendants to make the backs a little more interesting. Some of the non-technical characteristics of chrysocolla are: conciliation, reassurance, wisdom, peace and tranquility, intuition, patience and unconditional love. I hope you'll visit my Etsy shop and give these new pieces a look.

The gemstone Chrysocolla is often confused with turquoise. It is a copper bearing mineral found wherever copper deposits occur especially in areas of the southwestern USA, Chili, Zaire, Australia, France and England. Eliat Stone is a variegated blue and green mixture of chrysocolla and other copper minerals found in the Gulf of Aqaba, near the northwestern end of the Red Sea". Pure chrysocolla is too soft for jewelry purposes but it is often found in quartz deposits which makes it hard enough to polish for cabochons. It is often found mixed with malachite, turquoise and azurite. The druzy form of chrysocolla is a beautiful Robin's egg blue.
