These are A+ grade blue Kyanite earrings. These special quality Kyanite stones have been cut and highly polished into an elongated teardrop. These teardrop Kyanite beads measure 8 x 20 x 5mm. The silver ear wires are embellished with a little bit of wire wrap. A hint of Rhodium has been added to the silver. Rhodium added to silver slows up the tarnishing process. That's less polishing for you. Kyanite is thought to bring tranquility and calm to the wearer. This stone is also said to be a balancing tool for the yin/yang energies.
