You can celebrate your love of travel with these wire wrapped compass inspired emerald green tourmaline and iolite hoop dangle earrings...

The Compass earrings are inspired by Leif Eriksson's journey to the Americas. He and the other Viking explorers were able to use the unique property of pleochroism in the iolite gem to make the first polarizing lens. These thin iolite filters allowed them to determine the exact position of the sun so that they could safely navigate to the New World and back.

Iolite has different colors in different directions in the crystal...otherwise known as pleochroism. The stone will look blue violet from one side, clear from another and yellow from the top. Because of this it was once known as the water sapphire.

In this piece..as if from the center of a compass...a beautifully faceted blue violet iolite disc hangs from a sterling silver hoop delicately wire wrapped with tiny rare faceted deep emerald green tourmaline stones. They are completed by sterling silver french hooks. The tourmaline in these earrings is rare largely because of the deep green color and specifically by the size of the faceted stones. They are incredibly tiny and very hard to come by..kind of like the New World :)
