A jewel of the night sky, this globular star cluster in Hercules is known as Messier 13. It hangs, suspended in sparkling stillness, in the darkness of space about 25,000 light years away and is composed of a few hundred thousand stars. Anyone can wear diamonds or rubies...wearing a star cluster is far more interesting.
The image is printed on a translucent medium in order to give the pendant a slightly luminescent look. The back of the 1" glass tile is sealed with a jewelry-grade resin and is water resistant (although you should still not wear it swimming or in the shower). The bail is silver-plated and the pendant is hung on your choice of an 18" black cord, silver twist chain, or silver link chain..
