Sodalite, Epidote & Rhodonite Earrings
Pieces of Sodalite, Epidote and Rhodonite are cut and polished by Alison Jean Cole and combined together to form these hanging earrings. The stones hang 60mm on hammered sterling silver wire.
Sodalite is a volcanic material, from the Minas Gervais in Brasil. Alison collected the green Epidote in the Sandia Mountains in New Mexico. It is a beautiful mineral associated with metamorphic rock formations. The pink Rhodonite hails from the high mountains of British Columbia. It is a silicate mineral rich in manganese which imparts the rich pink color.
