This is a beautiful pair of 18k yellow gold 6mm Crownwork tanzanite earrings on hooks with Variscite drops. The tanzanite is bezel set in our signature crownwork style. Tanzanite comes only from Tanzania. It is heat treated, either underground naturally by metamorphic processes, or artificially to give it its rich violet color. It has properties of composure, poise and harmony. The ear hooks on these earrings are made of 18k spring gold so its high tensile, easy to get on and off and helps the earring hang directly underneath the earlobe.
Variscite is named after “Variscia,” the historical name of the Vogtland district in Saxony, Germany, where the gemstone was originally found in 1837. A hydrated aluminum phosphate mineral, variscite is rare and has been previously mistaken for turquoise at times. Variscite tends to not only be greener than turquoise, but also doesn’t contain copper. As a green gemstone it is often associated with wealth and believed to help brain-related functions, improving intellect and logic. It is associated with the zodiac signs of signs of Gemini, Scorpio and Taurus. Wear this pair of Variscite earrings to induce peace and harmony within yourself.
