We call natural, earth-mined, colorless quartz “rock crystal.” It is important to differentiate this material from man-made glass, often erroneously, and deceptively, referred to as “quartz.” When examined very closely or with a loupe, tiny inclusions are visible, indicating the natural origin of the stones. These focal stones have a spectacular cut, pointed at the bottom and micro-faceted.
The rock crystal is matched up with purple-blue tanzanite. These little stones are high-grade and the dreamy color is highly desirable.
I hand-make this style of ear wires to complement the beaded design. These earrings are sterling silver and they are 1-13/16” long, including the ear wires.
