Garden quartz is (one of) the most magical stones in the world to me. It is in fact quartz which usually a clear mineral, with 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.
These stones are set in fine silver bezels on sterling silver sheet. Handmade sterling silver hoops with bar accents. These are super fun to wear and make a statement with all the weight :)
