These are gorgeous blue Larimar earrings. They feature polished cabochons of Larimar set in sterling silver findings.
The blue is a ocean blue. It has a beautiful luster and, although generally opaque, can display a hint of translucency that sometimes makes it appear to glow. The more intense the blue, and the more contrasts within in the stone, the more rare it is. and that makes it more valuable. These are lovely stones.
As an added note of caution, I have read that this blue color is photosensitive and fades with time if exposed to too much light and heat.
MARKS: stamped 925 on the back.
CONDITION: Great pre-owned condition. Very light patina to the sterling, but it can be polished to a high shine if you prefer. No nicks or flaw sin the larimar stones.
SIZE: 1-1/4" long by 1/2" at widest part. These are not large heavy earrings...please note the measurements.
HISTORY: Larimar was originally discovered in the early 1900's. Not given much attention at that time, it was re-discovered in the early 1970's. It is steadily gaining in popularity. It is a rare blue variety of pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue.
