Lapis, Serpentine & Quartzite Earrings
These earrings are cut from blue lapis, yellow serpentine, and pale pink quartzite. All metamorphosed materials! Lapis forms in large swaths in super heated limestone where India is colliding with Asia. Yellow serpentine forms in ocean crustal rocks where hydrothermal waters circulate and serpentinize the volcanic material. The quartzite is super heated pure sandstone where the sand grains have recystalized and fused back together.
The stones are 22mm wide and 34mm long and hang 64mm total on hammered 14k gold fill wire. The earrings weigh 9 grams total.
