Lavender quartz is a rare variety of natural quartz (not man made) that was mined at the Borquria Mine in Bahia, Brazil. The mine is no longer producing. Because this is such an uncommon stone, there isn’t an abundance of information on it – some believe its mineral makeup is a combination of rose quartz and amethyst. Some say it may be heat treated. Everybody agrees that it’s absolutely beautiful!
These natural lavender quartz stones hang within hand-forged, textured hoops. The earrings are 2” long including the handmade ear wires. These are sterling silver.
Lavender quartz is said to be a stone of joy and healing, through alleviating low self esteem or lack of self worth, and by soothing and reducing stress and tension.
