Genuine Orange and Blue Sodalite earrings comprised of marquise cabochons in Sterling Silver frames with 4mm triangular, faceted Amethyst gems. Each earring measures 1.8 inches long from the top of the ear wire. The backs of the cabochons have not been polished.
Sodalite wasn't discovered until 1811. They found it on the southwest coast of Greenland where there are a lot of unusual types of rocks. No one really bothered to turn it into jewelry or inlay decorative work until 1891, 80 years later. Why? Because that's when another big deposit of Sodalite was discovered in Canada in Ontario.
It's an interesting stone. It is fairly lightweight. It is full of sodium - that is why it was named sodalite. It is hard and fragile at the same time. (Reminds me of some individuals I know.)
When Sodalite is both blue and orange it is labeled Sunset Sodalite.
