Tourmalinated Quartz Drop Earrings: Smooth 16x10mm teardrop shape beads hang on wires. Wires swing freely from earrings for movement. These beads are predominantly somewhat translucent white quartz with a some black Tourmaline inclusions. (Sometimes this stone is incorrectly called Rutilated Quartz, but note that Rutile is a different mineral.) The Tourmaline needles are mostly small and are oriented in different directions. Every bead is unique!
SIZE: Beads are 16mm x 10mm. Total length including earwires is just under 1 3/8 inches (34mm).
Expect features characteristic of natural stone beads, including surface imperfections, inclusions, etc. Note that colors and brightness vary on different monitors. You get the exact piece shown here.
METAL: All metal components are at least .925 Sterling Silver. The leverback style earwires offer extra security. Pins (that beads are strung on) are Argentium, a special form of Sterling Silver that is brighter and more resistant to tarnish (storing it in a closed container when not wearing for periods of time is still recommended). According to argentiumsilver.com it is more pure (.935 silver) and is made exclusively from recycled silver.
