    Was expecting more for the price. Be prepared to untangle the chain, then replace it with one of significance.

            Comments about RAW QUARTZ BIRTHSTONE NECKLACE:

            Very disappointed with this piece of jewelry. Upon opening the necklace, the first thing I noticed was the silver chain was tarnished. Once I saw the "rock" ( literally a rock that I could have picked up from my backyard ) hanging from the tarnished chain, I realized that this was going nowhere but back to the shipper.
