Ammonite Fossil +  (chatoyant gemstone is t i g e r -e y e) + Blue Peruvian Opal + Sterling Silver Hand Fabricated Asymmetrical Earrings 

Fossils are so incredible - they lend us a peek into the past, and stir our imagination for the future!

These fascinating Ammonite fossil halves are no different - each is unique and incredibly beautiful! They are the basis for this earring design, creating two flowing earrings that are quite obviously meant to be together, even though they are at the same time so individual! 

Paired with a stunning genuine faceted (t i g e r - e y e)  gemstone, and a beautiful genuine blue Peruvian Opal drop, these hand fabricated Argentium Silver works of art will take your breath away! 

What is "T I G E R - E Y E"?

+It is a very popular gemstone that displays a chatoyancy (cat's-eye) when a polished stone is moved back and forth in light. It is a quartz gemstone, usually amber to brown in color, that forms when fibers of the mineral crocidolite are replaced by silica. This structure of parallel fibers is preserved in the stone, and the chatoyant "eye" crosses the parallel fibers at right angles. The best specimens of tiger's-eye are usually cut en cabochon in an orientation that yields the best display of chatoyancy.+

They hang on Sterling Silver leverbacks for added security when wearing.

Total Length is approximately 3 inches. 

A recommendation: These earrings contain fossils which are delicate, and must be treated with care! To prevent breaking or cracking, please wrap in tissue or bubble wrap individually when not being worn, and take care not to drop or bang them on hard surfaces. 

Please use the CHAT feature to the right of your screen to ask me any questions about these earrings prior to purchase!

Additional Info:

Azteca Designs jewelry is hand-fabricated one unique piece at a time by me!  Most of my work features intentional oxidation and patina. This finish is not meant to be removed, however, a small polishing cloth is included with silver jewelry orders and you may use this to gently clean your silver jewelry if it begins to tarnish. 

Some gemstones are more delicate than others. Please wear pieces with care. I recommend removing all jewelry before strenuous activity or bathing/swimming.

Most orders ship in 1-3 business days.

Please contact me with any questions you may have PRIOR to making your purchase!
