Safely held by a 6-prong sterling silver setting. Overall pendant weight is an impressive 35.36 grams. Bail opening is 7mm.

The black neoprene cord is super durable, withstands salt water and is perfect for every day wear. If you would prefer an adjustable leather cord or a sterling silver chain, please message me.

The first to mine the copper there were Native Americans (5000-1200 BC). Modern mining started around 1845 and by 1850 Michigan produced more than three-quarters of the nation's copper, and in 1869 produced more than 95% of the country's copper. Annual production peaked in 1916, by 1968 most deposits were mined out.

Awesome necklace for men and women alike and to be worn every day. A stunning gift for your 7th anniversary.
