Gold Imperial Topaz Silver Wire Wrapped Bullet Pendant

  • $ 3250


A recycled 32 caliber silver bullet shell casing combined with a gold Imperial topaz raw gemstone. I wrapped the shell casing with silver plated copper wire and added a 24 inch silver filled chain. The Imperial topaz crystal is from Brazil.

Pure topaz is colorless and transparent but is usually tinted by impurities. Imperial topaz is usually gold or yellow. Many gold or pale topazes are treated to make them bright yellow, gold, pink or violet colored. Blue topaz is found in Texas, but not mined there commercially. Naturally occurring blue topaz is quite rare. Typically, colorless, gray or pale yellow and blue material is heat treated and irradiated in order to produce a more desired darker blue. Mystic topaz is colorless topaz that has been artificially coated giving it the desired rainbow effect.

Some say topaz comes from the Greek topazos, meaning "a precious stone". Others say the name comes from the Sanskrit word for fire. In folklore it was believed to calm a bad temper. It was also ground into powder and used as a cure for insomnia.

A Topaz under your pillow can prevent nightmares. It is said to help mood swings, fears, and depression. It can be used to achieve enlightenment and clarity of thought, and to change unwanted behavior. In ancient times it was worn to protect from injury and give the wearer great strength. Topaz can increase your attraction to other people and help bring about your desires.

Topaz can be found in many countries including Brazil, the U.S., Sri Lanka, Australia, and Mexico.

An original Beautiful Bullets design. I have been creating bullet jewelry since 2009 and have designed over a hundred different styles and types. I use recycled bullet shell casings, metal filigrees, Swarovski crystals, natural gemstones and vintage glass. All of the bullet casings I use are recycled so please allow for variations and small imperfections.

I started my bullet jewelry line as a peace project, and I continue to donate part of the sale to different charities. I have sent donations to the Peace Corps, the Patriot Guard Riders, the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, and the USO. Thanks to everyone who has purchased one of these designs and made that possible.
