№ 168 Labradorite, Moss Aquamarine, Rutilated Quartz

| /

In this collection I pushed myself to make stone and color combinations that were outside of my typical wheel house and these earrings showcase three stones beautifully together - labradorite, moss aquamarine and rutilated quartz.  I redesigned these earrings many times and I'm so happy I did, because I love the way the stones pair with an antique coin silver pendant from India!

Labradorite has an understated grey base with a hidden fire inside that shines through at just the right angle.  The iridescence ranges from deep blue, to yellowish green, even into the orange and purple hues.  Labradorite, the bringer of light, is believed to be a highly mystical and protective stone.  It stimulates intuition and psychic gifts and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe.

Moss Aquamarine's ocean hues range from greens to deep blues.  Moss aquamarine is believed to have an affinity with sensitive people, carrying the power of the ocean, it is considered a stone of courage, communication, and heightened clairvoyance. 

Rutilated Quartz comes in many different hues depending on the fine threads known as rutiles, ranging from yellow, rust, green, and black.  Rutilated quartz offers a story of how flaws transform into depth and beauty.  Believed to be an energizing and harmonizing stone, rutilated quartz is said to be an illuminator of the soul.

Earrings measure 2 ¼” from top of earwire.  All metal used is oxidized sterling silver.
