Originally I thought these were Leopard Jasper, however I fast found out I was wrong! A fairly rare variety of the Chalcedony family, it is very hard - around 6 1/2 - 7 on the Mohs scale. The fossils formed approximately 20-40 million years ago, when lush forests of Palm-wood trees fell. The spotted look of the Palm-wood is from the fossilized rod like structures within the grains of the wood. Petrified Palm-wood is the state fossil of Louisiana and the state stone of Texas, and called the STONE OF PATIENCE!....Soo - I guess this would be a perfect gift for a MOM!
They dangle down a full 4" and are 5/8" wide. They are for pierced ears.
Hallmarked by the Navajo artist - SDB Sterling
