Carved and smoked bone from Tibet, peridot and red aventurine gold plate earrings. Tibet culture uses carved bone for centuries as ornaments and jewelry.
Peridot is transparent with a distinct oily luster. Peridot’s color ranges from yellow-green, green with a golden tone, olive or bottle green, deep chartreuse, or simply a brilliant light green. The amount of iron present in peridot causes the shade and depth of the green; the deeper the green, the smaller the amount of iron present.
Peridot is the National gem of Egypt. Ancient Egyptians knew it as “the gem of the sun.” Peridot was mined for over 3,500 years on St Johns Island. As late as the 19th Century, the Kedhive of Egypt had a monopoly on the mines. .
Red Aventurine is from the Quartz group and is characterized by brilliant inclusions of Mica or other minerals that give the stone a glistening or shimmering effect.
These earrings are great with casual and dressy styles!
It compliments the "Potential" necklace pictured below beautifully!
