These dangly earrings are made of a blue-green magnesite puffed twisted oval with an antique silver-plated fancy pewter drop dangling at the bottom. The magnesite oval measures approximately 30mm or 1.18 inches long by 20mm or 0.79 inches wide. The pewter drop measures approximately 6mm or 0.24 inches round by 10mm or 0.39 inches long. The earrings are almost 3 inches long from the top of the ear wire.
In nature, magnesite is usually white. This stone is often dyed a variety of colors, and it is especially dyed to simulate turquoise. Though it is not as expensive as turquoise, magnesite has its own place in jewelry. This stone is said to be calming and balancing. It allows us to accept others and ourselves more readily. It is even said to strengthen teeth and bones, and to ease the symptoms of PMS.
