Rhodochrosite Earrings (#22-24)
Rhodochrosite cab finely wrapped in 14/20 argentium silver wire.
The earrings measures 1 1/4" long from the hook.
A little about Rhodochrosite: Much of the banded form of Rhodochrosite comes from Argentina, where the Rhodochrosite forms as stalagmites and stalactites in ancient Inca Silver mines and caves. Rhodochrosite has a beautiful natural pink color, however, it is nota durable gemstone because of its low hardness. It is easily scratched, and care must be ensured to protect it.
A little about the wire used: Argentium sterling contains less copper than standard sterling silver. It was developed specifically to combat the tarnish that occurs as a result of oxidization and it is more hypo-allergenic than traditional sterling silver.
