Two colorful pieces of Garden Quartz wrapped in fine silver bezels. Set on oxidized sterling silver sheet with hand-formed sterling silver wire accents. Handmade sterling silver earrings wires.
Garden quartz is (one of) the most magical stones in the world to me. It is in fact quartz which usually is a clear mineral but this stone has multi-colored mineral inclusions. It’s also known as included quartz or lodolite. So the colors you see inside this stone that often resemble moss are actually little minerals that have formed inside of the quartz! I patina (darken) the metal below the stone so any of the clear quartz parts are darkened which really helps illuminate all the different colors and patterns of the minerals.
Approximate dimensions of stone setting: 1.25 inches long
