Green Chrysocolla and Moonstone Wrapped Hoop Earrings

58.00

I had so much fun coming up with this design.  I tried to create the look of a geode, and I think they turned out pretty cute. The stones are green chrysocolla and moonstone, uniquely wrapped into silver hoops.  Leverback earwires.  Measure 1 3/4". Sterling silver.

About Chrysocolla: The name comes from the Greek chrysos, "gold", and kolla, "glue", in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold, and was first used by Theophrastus in 315 BCE. It's unique blue green color is unique in the mineral world, and sometimes gets confused for turquoise.  Chrysocolla is the gentlest of stones. Its main role is to soothe, calm and inspire. Its color alone is soothing with a deep blue-green which might remind you of a distant mountaintop or the stillness at the bottom of the sea.

About Moonstone: Moonstone is one of the most mythical of all gemstones. With its exotic, lunar name and its milky unique rainbow sheen, it has been a highly prized stone throughout history. Moonstone is a sacred stone to the people of India, and was named by the Romans for its ability to reflect moon light, making it a sacred stone to this culture as well. Legend has it that amulets of moonstone, associated with the goddesses Isis (Egyptian), Diana (Roman) and Selene (Greek), were hung in fruit trees to produce abundant crops. Moonstone is one of the birthstones for the month of June (along with pearl).

Your jewelry will arrive beautifully gift wrapped in a small box. If this is a gift being shipped directly to the recipient, please let me know. I will be glad to include a note from you.
