Seafoam Chalcedony + Argentium Silver + Suspension Earrings 

I call this style of setting "suspension" .... the gemstones are suspended in the argentium silver frame and held there with tension from the prongs. It's a really awesome way of showing off translucent stones and allowing the light to pass through!

This gorgeous Seafoam colored chalcedony sparkles in the sunlight with its faceted surface. It's truly a beautifully enhanced stone. 

What is Chalcedony?


Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica, composed of very fine intergrowths of quartz and moganite. These are both silica minerals, but they differ in that quartz has a trigonal crystal structure, while moganite is monoclinic. Chalcedony's standard chemical structure (based on the chemical structure of quartz) is SiO2 (silicon dioxide).

Chalcedony has a waxy luster, and may be semitransparent or translucent. It can assume a wide range of colors, but those most commonly seen are white to gray, grayish-blue or a shade of brown ranging from pale to nearly black. The color of chalcedony sold commercially is often enhanced by dyeing or heating.

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!
