Oh sweet tourmaline. One of my favorite stones. The colors are endless. The color in this earring is one of the prettiest - blue verging on green. Ocean - like.
Tourmaline is one of the world's most popular gemstones and it's October's birthstone.
The most spectacular tourmaline crystals are formed by hot hydrothermal activity. These crystals form when hot waters and vapors carry the elements needed to form tourmaline into pockets, voids and fractures, which offer an open space for crystal growth. One rich pocket can yield gem material worth millions of dollars.
14 karat gold filled french wires with textured brass open hoops measuring 5/8 inches, with second textured brass element measuring 3/8 inches. Ocean like colored tourmaline drop adds just the final touch you want. Total length from top to bottom measures just shy of 2 1/4 inches.
These are the type of earrings you put on and leave on - they go with any and everything. One of a kind! Enjoy!
