These post style earrings feature a pair of matched, ember-orange Mexican fire Opals set in quality Argentium* sterling silver settings. The Mayas and Aztecs loved Mexican fire opals and it's easy to see why. They called them 'quetzalitzlipyollitli', translated : the 'stone of the bird of paradise'.

The gems were earth-mined in Mazatlan in the Mexican highlands and are 100% natural, meaning, that no heat or chemical treatment processes were employed on them to enhance their natural colour or clarity. Their clarity and colour is 'museum grade' - technically 'IF' (='Internally Flawless'), absolutely transparent and clean.

The cut is flawless too, demonstrating neat proportions, ideal symmetry, and perfect unblemished surface facets. The colour of the gems is their best feature though. It's the brightest of Fanta orange/red hues containing a shimmering inner fire in yellow and orange tones, aglow like molten lava.

Unset, the gems weigh 0.35 carats each and measure 5mm in diameter. Along with their solid 4-prong Argentium* settings each earring weighs 0.4 grams and measures 12mm in length.

As with all Salon Petite post style earrings, the prong tips have been micro sanded to limit the chances of the metalwork catching in hair or on clothing; and both Argentium silver butterfly clutches and clear silicone stoppers are supplied for your comfort and convenience in fitting.


* Argentium Sterling is a modern sterling alloy containing a metalloid called Germanium, which reduces the tendency of the silver to tarnish, and increases its natural shine. As the compound retains the 92.5% pure silver content of the traditional alloy, it is however still referred to as 'Sterling Silver'.
