Description

Earrings model “Orbit”, hand-made with chrysocolla discs on hammered fine silver pins (999),  protected with anti-tarnish. Bauhaus style.

The name chrysocolla comes from the Greek “crysos”, gold and “kolla”, glue, referring to the material used to weld gold. While looking similar to turquoise, the cyan-blue chrysocolla is a different type of copper mineral. It regularly occurs mixed with other minerals like malachite (green), tenorite (black), limonite (yellowish) or cuprite (reddish-brown) which leads to fascinating color combinations.

Superior quality… distinctive throughout Peru for its purity and brightness, our silver is 100% free of cadmium and nickel (toxic and harmful to health). The pins are made of fine silver wire (99.9% pure silver) with a hand-hammered tip. They have been protected against oxidation caused by humidity with an electrolytic bath in sterling silver (925) and anti-tarnish coating.

Our minerals are hand-carved one by one and polished to the highest possible shine with our scratch-free guarantee.
