Mixed Blue and Green Stone Abacus Earrings

58.00

Hand forged frames are wrapped with a mix of pretty gems. They remind me of an abacus. The stones are amazonite, green chalcedony, turquoise and Russian amazonite. Measure just under 2". Handmade shepherd hook earwires. Sterling silver, which has been oxidized and hand polished for an antique finish.

About Amazonite: Amazonite is a type of feldspar, ranging in color from bright green to bluish green. Like most gems, amazonite has a colorful folklore. Said to have been worn or named after the Amazon women warriors during the Bronze Age, amazonite was also reported to have been used by the Egyptians. Although its' name is derived from the Amazon River, no deposits have been found there!

About turquoise: The name turquoise means "Turkish stone" because the trade route that brought it to Europe came via Turkey. Turquoise is a non-translucent stone of which the most valuable specimens are robin's egg blue or deep-blue azure. It also comes in brown, yellow, and many shades of green. The veins are inclusions from nearby rock fragments or oxides that form during the creation of turquoise.

Turquoise, the gemstone worn by pharaohs and Aztec kings, is probably one of the oldest gemstones known. Native Americans and many of the Indian tribes in Mexico used turquoise for currency, and the stone is still associated with the religious rites of the Navajo. Because it remains fashionable, turquoise is quite highly prized, although it is fairly plentiful.

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.
