Chrysocolla cab finely wrapped in argentium sterling wire.
The earrings measure 1 7/8" long from the top of the ear hook.
A little bit about Chrysocolla: Chrysocolla is a sharply colored mineral. Its color can be among the brightest shade of blue and green, and is caused by its copper content. Chrysocolla is often coated by a drusy layer of glossy clear Quartz, or intergrown together with the Quartz.
Most Chrysocolla is from copper deposits in arid regions, though it is not at all limited to these regions and is found worldwide.
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.
