Staurolite Crystals Aquamarine Earrings - Fairy Stone Crosses Earrings
Delicate little 24k gold chased Staurolite Crosses are adorned with faceted rondelles of aquamarine in these remarkable organic and nature-formed earrings. These naturally occurring crosses are commonly called “Crosses of Stone”, “Fairy Stone Crosses” or the geological name - Staurolite Crystals. Staurolite Crystals are a natural rock formation in the shape of a cross and are found in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, New Mexico and Russia. They range in size from 1/8 inch to over 4 inches and are formed in five colors – red, white, black, brown and yellow. Oddly enough, all colors will turn grey when exposed to the elements for a long period of time. They are composed of iron aluminum and silicate. Size: 1.5 inches long from top of gold vermeil non-slip ear wire.
