We set this gold-in- quartz in yellow gold, and let it rotate! From its bail, it hangs 1.25 inches. It is a wonderful both the viewer and the wearer as it collects light through the crystal clear quartz and it is reflected off of the Gold-in- Quartz needles. We call the stone Gold-in-Quartz, But actually the needles are fool's gold, or pyrite. Either way, it's a really spectacular pendant!
