Ginny Maiolo - Everest
"Because it's there." -- George Mallory
Dendritic Quartz (or moss agate) is the stone that promotes inner stability and self examination. I purchased this stone from a lovely jewelry artist in Pokhara, Nepal in October 2018. Pokhara is where many trekkers begin their journey to conquer the world's highest peaks in the Annapurna and Himalaya mountain ranges. When I saw this stone we had just taken a flight out of Katmandu to see the world's highest mountain, Mt. Everest. The terrain leading up to the Himalayas looked just like this stone...the green countryside, the barren rocks and then the majestic snow-covered mountains. Stunning. The piece is about two inches long and hangs on a 24 inch Bali, popcorn chain.
