These doublet style earrings are a translucent plume agate backed with a dyed material (imitation turquoise) as the backing. The most important thing you need to know is that this doublet style (a turquoise backing) is based on a clever design I first saw being sold by @rareearthminingco.

Doubleting is a common trick in lapidary to give moss and plume agates depth. Usually a black backing is used, basalt or jasper, to make the plumes pop. I had never seen someone using a blue backing to make a somewhat underwater looking scene until recently! Very clever, and I really want to give credit to where I saw it first.

The stones are 32mm wide and hang 58mm on hammered 14k gold fill wire. The earrings weigh 3.5 grams each.
