Regular price $40.00

Rare ruby trapiche sterling silver necklace 

The rare feature of a six lined star fixed within the mineral structure of a gem stone was first discovered in emeralds in Colombia at the end of the 19th century. As this pattern was resembling the wheel of a sugar cane mill, the Spanish word for it “trapiche” became the synonym for these emeralds and later for any gem with a similar growth pattern.
