Dichroic glass is created with an extremely thin metal coat on one side and shows off a multitude of colors at different angles. Dichroic glass is very difficult to photograph, but the series of photos here gives you an idea of the beauty that spills out of this pendant. The back side is equally luminescent! This pendant measures up to 2” long ( not including the bail), and 1 1/4” wide at its widest at the lowest part. The gold colored snake chain is adjustable from 16 1/2” to 18 1/2”.
