This is a great necklace for either a man or a woman. It's 17 1/2 inches of brown onyx, garnets and Baltic amber. Broken down that's 36 garnets, 18 Baltic amber pieces and 19 brown onyx stones. It's still in the making because the onyx has not been polished to a high shine. This stone will continue to absorb your body oils and become richer in color. The bands in the onyx will become darker with time. It's an awesome healing piece due to the fact amber is considered one of the master healing stones. I have to say after test wearing it out it is a very warm and comforting piece. Amber is considered a master healing stone. The clasp is sterling silver and necklace can be resized.
