These apatite stones are so vibrant and complement the amazing color in these beautiful little "fire paintings" so well. Each piece is hand brushed individually with a top grade permanent lacquer and the sterling silver shepherd's hook ear wires are darkened with a patina so there is no care involved. Please only clean with water. Earrings measure approx. 1 3/4" in length from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the stone.
