Human Skull post earrings hand crafted in Sterling Silver with pink sapphire eyes. The eyes are 2.5mm natural pink fancy sapphire mined in Africa and cut in Thailand. They are heat treated as described below. Total weight is about .30 carat. The skulls measure about 7/16" wide and 17/32" tall, and weigh about 1.5 grams each, 3 grams total. The last picture shows the back of one of the earrings next to a Dime and a ruler in inches for visual size scale. The posts are sterling silver and the ear nuts are Surgical Steel. Please note that the stones are not all identical in color; there is some variation. This gives them personality.

I also have several designs of skull rings in my shop. I can make skull earrings like this with just about any gemstone. If you would like something custom made for you, please use a Convo to contact me.

Gemologically Speaking; This is the educational part:

Did you know that ruby and sapphire are actually the same stone? Most people think of blue when they think of sapphire, but it actually comes in all colors. Sapphire is the mineral corundum, or aluminum oxide. It occurs naturally in blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, clear, pink, red, and in every shade, combination, and intensity of these colors you can imagine.. Medium to dark red to red-purple corundum is called ruby. Pink-orange corundum is called Padparadscha Sapphire. But it's all the same rock; corundum.

Corundum is crystalline aluminum oxide (Al2O3). The various stone colors come from very small quantities of some other metal in the crystal lattice. In the case of ruby, chromium is the metal that makes it red. Titanium by itself makes sapphire clear, and Iron by itself makes sapphire yellow. Iron and Titanium together make sapphire blue. All the other colors come from mixtures of 2 or 3 of these metals in the crystal lattice. Corundum is actually fairly common in low silica igneous and metamorphic rock, but as gray or brown grains, not in translucent gem quality crystals. It takes very special conditions to form transparent gem corundum or star corundum crystals. Corundum is usually formed in metamorphic rocks such as marble, schist, and gneiss. It is very hard, having a hardness of 9.0 on the Mohs scale. Common corundum is used as an abrasive, such as in sandpaper. Being hard and heavy, with a specific gravity of 3.95 to 4.1, as large amounts of corundum bearing rocks are eroded and weathered away over time, corundum crystals become concentrated in placer deposits in drainages below the corundum containing rock strata; just like gold nuggets in gold placer deposits. Since gem crystals are few and far between in the rock, it is usually not possible to mine the rock in the mountains to find the crystals, and make a profit. But the corundum crystals become concentrated together by gravity in the placer deposits formed below. Thus almost all ruby and sapphire mines in the world are placer mines where miners "pan" through the dirt and sand in stream basins to find the rubies and sapphires. And for millennia it has been common practice for miners to heat the corundum they mine to improve the color of their stones. Truly unheated natural sapphire or ruby is very rare. These stones are heat treated.

Metaphysically Speaking:

It's powers are psychism, love, meditation, peace, and healing. Historically sapphire has been associated with alignment with and realization of an individual's destiny. It has been said to promote mental clarity, clear perception, and wisdom because it has the ability to draw out knowledge and wisdom buried deep within the sub-conscious mind. It can assist the wearer in finding and accomplishing their purpose here in life. It is a powerful stone to be used in meditation to increase the flow of wisdom. It has had a position of importance in all historical religions throughout the world, due to this connection with divine wisdom. It is also a stone to facilitate and help all human relationships; love relationships, business, friends, extended family, and everyone else you connect with in your life. As the guardian of love, it attunes the feelings of lovers for each other, and promotes fidelity. It works the same for you in business dealings or any other dealings with people. It just makes the relationship flow and work. Physically it is said to strengthen the eyes, halt fever, and stop nose bleeds. It can aid communication, ameliorate depression, and increase mental clarity, intuition, clairvoyance, and calm.
