Give Me A Ring Sometime - Saturn System Gemstone Necklace
There's something about Saturn.
With its intricate ring system and entourage of 62 orbiting moons, Saturn is one of the stars of the solar system (we're talking figuratively. It's not literally a star). We've taken the Big 7 of these orbiters: from the closest to Saturn, Mimas through to the Iapetus, orbiting at a distance of 3.5 million km.
Mimas, the smallest of the major moons: Blue Lace Agate
Enceladus, the moon most likely to harbour life: Rose Quartz
Tethys, composed almost entirely of water-ice: White Jade
Dione, the fourth largest satellite of Saturn: White Jade
Rhea, found to have an Oxygen atmosphere by Cassini in 2010: Rose Quartz
Titan, the largest of the Saturn satellites: Tiger Eye
Iapetus, with its two sides: Amber
Lined up in a orbital-formation, these gemstone moons are finished with a brass Saturn and a solo shining star. Suspended from a brass chain, the overall length measures 18" long.
Fun Fact! Titan, the largest of Saturn's moons (and the second largest moon in the solar system), makes up 96% of the mass orbiting the planet.
