This beautiful hand-carved Black Mother of Pearl Dragonfly has clearly been crafted by a master artisan.

Polished to perfection, this stunning black Mother of Pearl dragonfly is an incomparable gift for for yourself or someone you love!
Treasured for the warmth with which it reflects light, Mother of Pearl is considered by some to be the "opal of the sea".
Composed of calcium carbonate and conchiolin, Mother of Pearl is used by some cultures for medicinal purposes, to promote health and tranquility for the beholder. While there may not be any scientific proof for the claims of medicinal benefits, it is difficult to argue with the quite sense of awe you feel as you gaze deeply into one of nature's loveliest natural jewels!
The black dragonfly measures 1 5/8 inches from wingtip to wingtip, 1 1/4 inches from head to tail, and is suspended from a 16 inch, matching sterling silver chain.
