I originally thought I'd make a pendant with these two fossil coral stones, but I think they're more fun as swingy asymmetrical earrings. Handmade by me, the rich brown and tan stones are prong-set in sterling silver baskets, with sterling silver stems and ear wires.
These unique earrings measure 2 3/4" long. The teardrop earring measures 3/4" at the widest point, while the oval earring measures 9/16" at the widest point.
Agatized fossil coral is a natural gemstone with a beautiful flower pattern that resembles the appearance of individual coral polyps.
Fossil coral is created when prehistoric coral is gradually replaced with agate. Corals are marine animals and it is their skeletons that are fossilized and preserved. The fossil coral forms through hardened deposits left by silica-rich waters. The entire process can take over 20 million years.
Fossilized Coral is not only considered a grounding stone, but also a stone of change, and is an excellent stone for embarking down a new path with steady, resolute energy.
With such permeable grounding energy, it comes as no surprise that Fossilized Coral connects with Taurus, one of the most grounded and reliable Earth Signs in the Zodiac.
