#8 Raw Chrysocolla Hand-Cut Teardrop Stone Earrings OOAK #8
Whoohoo! Chrysocollas have been another popular stone for all of you, so I was thrilled to source a small amount of these natural, raw, hand-cut green teardrop stones that are full of color and character! I grabbed all that they had, so this will be a very limited batch. Once we sell-out of them, that'll be it!
(We're offering a few of these stones in our Taliswoman-style necklaces that are also available here- these earrings are the perfect match of course, and make for a great gift-set when paired with one of the necklaces!)
Heavenly in its calming shades of green, Chrysocolla captures the soft serenity of still water on a golden summers day. Known for lending a helping hand for those who want to tap into their highest truths, Chrysocolla has a gentle flow, inviting you to tune into your own sense of wonder and knowledge and giving you those tools you need to become your own greatest teacher.
The name Chrysocolla comes from the Greek word Chrysos meaning gold and Kola which translates to glue. A whisper of its rich and regal color scheme, golden shades mingled with Malachite, Turquoise, and Azurite – forming the magical blended gemstone known as the Eilat stone. It earned part of its name kola as it was one of the first materials to be used by goldsmiths to weld precious metals together. Artists and workers loved the stone and it was often used by renaissance painters, ground down to a pigment to be used in their most epic works of art. It was beloved by Emperors and Kings, known to be a stone that carried connotations of elite living.
These raw, hand-cut, teardrop-shaped gemstones are each 1/2" wide x 5/8" tall x 3/16" thick and have a total height from the Sterling Silver earwires to the bottom of the teardrop Chrysocolla stone of 1 3/8". These Chrysocollas are wire-wrapped to their tiny brass bails with Sterling Silver wire for contrast and are then suspended from Sterling Silver earwires.
This listing is for this one of a kind pair!
