Absolutely stellar quality Chrysocolla, flowingly wrapped in sterling silver, with sterling silver accent beads. Named after the Greek deity, whom it is fabled that Aphrodite, before she emerged from the sea to ascend to Olympus, fell in love with Nerites. When the time had come for her to join the Olympan gods, she wanted Nerites to go with her, but he refused, preferring to stay with his family in the sea. Even the fact that Aphrodite promised him a pair of wings did not make him change his mind. The scorned goddess then transformed him into a shellfish and gave the wings to her son, Eros. One of his sisters Nerea found him and begged Poseidon to give him back his normal form. Poseidon accepted and returned Nerites to normal.
Now that is one serious female tantrum!
