Prehnite is a stone with a gorgeous muted green hue, often found coinciding with epidote – a darker, almost black stone. In these earrings, the focal stones are prehnite with epidote inclusions. The accent stones are prasiolite, often called by the misnomer “green amethyst,” a pale green variety of quartz. These prasiolite beads are natural and not heated (heat treating amethyst to create prasiolite is a common practice). The metal elements of these earrings are hand crafted in my studio, the rings and the ear wires. These earrings are sterling silver. They hang 2-3/16” in total length, including the ear wires.
