Sterling silver and andalusite

30 x 5.5 mm


Andalusite is perhaps my favourite gemstone, if I have to settle on only one choice. This gemstone is trichroic which means that it exhibits three different colours depending on how you look at it. It is orange-yellow, brown and green simultaneously. What a marvellous gemstone!

I made these earrings for my best friend and I think that the pretty stones compliment the classic design quite well. I buy all the andalusite stones that I can find and afford. I mostly hoard this gemstone, along with moonstones and tourmaline, but on occasion I will use some of them in jewellery.

One earring was carved from wax and used to make a mould. These two earrings were cast in sterling silver using that mould. In principle I can cast more earrings from this mould but I simply don't like to repeat work, so I believe that these earrings will remain one of a kind.
