Smoky Quartz, Roman Glass, and Pyrite Earrings

Smoky quartz, Roman glass, and pyrite earrings. Gold filled. Unique pieces of ancient glass from the Palestine area. Most Roman glass is aqua colored, this is a very pale translucent yellow. Some bits of the original iridescent glaze still visible.

The glass is 20mm (3/4"). The faceted sparkling brown natural quartz briolette is 1/2" (12mm). The pyrite roundel (which is electroplated ) is 8mm (1/3").

Total length is 2-1/8" (5.5cm). They are light weight and comfortable to wear.

History combined with contemporary design.

Wikipedia has a terrific page explaining Roman glass.
