One-of-a-kind hoop earrings with fascinating Salina wonderstones, handcut and polished to highlight the stones' beautiful black "puddles" and concentric banding. The patterns also appear on the backside of the stones, which are visible thanks to the open-back design.
The stones can also be removed from the hoops, making these earrings a versatile, two-in-one design.
This wonderstone's natural pattern evokes a kind of portal or passageway. This classic symbol of transition reminds us that with every ending comes a new beginning. We may not know what lies ahead, but we can learn to trust the mystery.
While the term "wonderstone" is applied to a variety of rocks, this particular specimen features the natural banded colors associated with the Salina, Utah area where it was collected. This wonderstone is a type of rhyolite created by layers of welded and compressed volcanic matter and formed over millions of years.
Earrings measure approx. 1.40" long (35.56mm)
