This necklace is 18 inches and made from ruby in zoisite, rubies, black tourmaline, amethyst, and sterling silver. The green oval beads have reddish spots that are made of ruby. I used additional rubies to accent and bring out the color. Pale amethyst and dark tourmaline complete the palette. In the evening after a day of hiking or mountain biking, the sky becomes tinged with lavender, the sun turns red, and the colors of the forest deepen. This necklace will evoke the outdoors whenever you wear it.
