These opulent, one of a kind earrings are sure to get noticed. A generous howlite teardrop is framed by two blue-dyed howlite beads, accented with silver. These are heavy earrings with a stunning matrix pattern. The length is nearly 2 1/2″; the teardrop stone is 3/4″. Fishhook earwires in antique silver finish the pair.
Howlite is an underappreciated gemstone first mined in Canada. Its complex, weblike patterns give it a unique appearance comparable to natural turquoise when it’s dyed blue.
