Summer evenings when the first glow of sunset stains the sky a streak of red and light bounces off the shimmering ripples of the lake. That's what I see.
The stone is Tiger Iron. It has bands of red jasper, hematite, and tiger eye. The tiger eye shimmers as the pendant moves, almost as if the water is rippling. The stone is suspended by one garnet and the other delicious accents are citrine.
“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.” --John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
