Rhodonite Half Moon Earrings
Elegant half-moon pieces of Pink Rhodonite are cut and polished by Alison Jean Cole to form these hanging earrings. The stones are 26mm wide and hang 38mm on hammered 14k gold wire.
Rhodonite is a silicate mineral, likely formed from upwelling of metallic minerals (in this case manganese) from below the crust. It is often found in quartz veins near gold mines.
