Rough Pyrite Drop Earrings
These bold rough pyrite drop earrings remind me of the rugged mountains surrounding Mammoth Ski Area. As they are found in nature, these earrings are of various shapes, no two are exactly the same. Pyrite’s metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool’s gold. Suspended from a long silver wire hook they measure approximately 1 3/4″ in length and the stones are approximately 1/2″ wide.
