Green Stone Drop Earrings in Oxidized Sterling Silver, Unique Ricolite Serpentine Stone



Simple and modern in style, these green stone drop earrings are earthy, too. They feature unique ricolite, a type of serpentine stone from New Mexico. Ricolite is generally banded or striped in shades of green to sandy tan to black. In the mineral ricolite, serpentine is interbanded with talc making it somewhat soft. Ricolite still takes a nice polish as these stones exhibit.

The ricolite pair used in these earrings are gracefully tapering rectangles, about 5 x 20mm in width by length. This means the stones are a little under one inch long. The color is a rich leafy green layered with darker green, greyish green, and sage green bands. I set them in sterling silver with just a simple hanging loop at the top of the stones and a flourish of silver wire covering the drill hole at front. I gave the silver an antiqued finish that complements the greyish tones I see within the green. The understated wire work setting and the geometric shape of the earrings is modern and minimalist in style. 

These handcrafted ricolite earrings are a smidgen longer than 1.5-inches or about 38mm.
