Will it be a snowy winter? It won't matter if you have this quartz snowball pendant. Not for throwing!! Just for pretty. We purchased the quartz in Tucson, at the gem show, on a warm and sunny day. When we had left Cincinnati it was snowy and icy. As the world heats up, here's an everlasting snowball! From the top of the bail, it hangs two and a half inches, set in silver. It rolls on an axis and swivels on its bail.
