Heterosite gemstone dangle sterling silver earrings

These earrings are made of Heterosite a purple mineral which was recognised as a mineral in 1826 and is a manganese phosphate. As is typical of the Germans they have cut these stones beautifully into smooth elongated teardrops 40mm long. I have made silver ear studs from my American Oak cup collection to hang them from making them 55mm long in total.

I enjoy trying to source unusual gemstones and on a visit to a German gemstone supplier from the area well known for talented gemstone cutters the town of  Idar-Oberstein I found some beautiful stones of which these are a pair.
