Rose Cut Clear Quartz with Aurora Opal & Moonstone Earrings
Please select all options.
These handcrafted hoop earrings are a piece from the Aurora collection, inspired by all the shimmering crystals that evoke images of twilight skies, the wings of faeries and rainbows that fill my garden after a sunshower. This particular design features two beautiful pieces of rose cut Himalayan Clear Quartz that sit above slices of pastel rainbow Aurora Opal, allowing the colours from the Opal to shine through the quartz and shimmer through its facets. They are paired with two lovely round pieces of Moonstone that shimmer with colour in the light. Like all my work, these earrings are a complete one of a kind, made using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, ethically sourced crystals and environmentally friendly methods.

💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Rich in historical significance, Moonstone was admired by the Romans for over 2000 years, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon. Hindu legend also links its formation to the moonbeams, and it was used by the Ancient Greeks in jewellery and religious ceremonies. It has used even longer in the Orient and has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers and is a traditional wedding gift there. It was a popular choice for jewellers in the Art Nouveau period, and in Europe was believed to reconcile estranged lovers and to cure sleeplessness.
Perhaps one of the most beautiful things about Moonstone is its adularescence, which is the name for the unearthly sheen of colour that moves under the stone's surface, creating a semblance of moonlight glimmering in water.
Legendary as 'The Traveller's Stone,' Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self-expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities. It is also said that moonstone brings good fortune and abundance to those who wear it. Full of feminine energy, Moonstone is a perfect stone to help with fertility, childbirth, mothering and nurturing in general.
💎 HIMALAYAN CLEAR QUARTZ LORE:
Himalayan Quartz is a rare and ancient variety of Quartz that formed within the Himalayan Mountains, running through Nepal and Bhutan, and creating the border between India and China. It is almost always gathered by hand, due to the fact that it is near impossible for machinery and heavy tools to reach the mountains where they are found. The majority of Himalayan Quartz gathered has a smoky look or is full of red Hematite inclusions, but the rarest and most beautiful pieces found are so clear that you can see through them completely.
In regard to their history, Quartz crystals have been thought of as a source of light to mankind since ancient times. Highly valued by spiritual leaders and healers as well as scientists, quartz crystals have played a key role in our development over the last few thousand years. Cultures like the Native American Indians, African tribes, Ancient Egyptians, Aztecs and Roman used quartz for meditation, healing rituals, spiritual development and magic.
Today, Clear Quartz is thought to be a crystal that brings clarity, energy and power to its wearer. It is said to help bring balance into one's life, aid in manifestation, and help one's creative drive. As well as this, Himalayan Clear Quartz is thought to radiate a calming energy and provide a shield to protect from negativity.
💎 AURORA OPAL LORE:
Aurora Opals are lab-created Opals that use Silica (the natural compound that all Opals are made of) and combine it with Polymer using a complex layering process, creating incredible swirly plays of colour in the most gorgeous colours. Unlike natural Opals that are extremely delicate, Aurora Opals are stronger, more resistant to chemicals, and not susceptible to color fading.
Aurora Opals are considered to be wonderful stones for improving one's mood, creativity, independence, growth and self-esteem. It's said to be powerful in reducing anger, promoting a sense of joy and fulfillment, increasing memory and helping to guide enthusiasm in areas of creativity. As well as this, Aurora Opals are thought to improve both mystical and psychic powers.
