This pair of earrings celebrates Spring time, flowers and everything green. A pink rose carved from the gemstone Rhodonite sits atop a a shiny oval twisted leaf made out of green-line Jasper dangling from sterling silver French ear wires. So pretty!
Rhodonite: The name comes from 'Rhodon' the Greek word for rose. Unlike Rose Quartz, it is opaque, pink with black running through it. It is thought to promote self-esteem and self-confidence and is also known as the 'singer's stone' as it is thought to improve the wearer's sensitivity to sound. It was also used to cure problems of the ear and lungs. As with all pink colored stones, it also associated with love.
Jaspers have been used as ornamental and gemstones from ancient times. They are microcrystalline Quartz in association with a variety of other minerals which give the Jaspers colorful patterns and bands. Jaspers are often named according to its color or patterns. Green Line Jasper combines green, cream and black lines in striking patterns. The green and black lines are formed by tourmaline needles embedded in quartz that provides a shiny finish to the stone.
