Lute Earrings, Laguna Lace Agate, 30% OFF!
Gorgeous and beautifully matched Laguna Lace Agate gemstones are the focal point of these versatile earrings. The shape of the earrings and the banding of the stones reminds me of a stringed instrument like a lute. A gray band through the center of each stone runs up into a sterling silver bar, and each stone is prong-set in a wire basket, all hand-soldered. At the end of the bar is a soldered sterling post and back. The stones have shades of gray, brown, red, ivory, and rust with striped patterning. The silver has been polished to a soft, matte finish.
Earrings measure 1 7/8" long and 5/8" at widest point. Completely hand-made and one of a kind! Were $138.00, now $99.00 (additional 10% off).
Laguna Agate is the most highly praised banded agate in the world. It is known for its extremely tight banding and vibrant shades of red and scarlet. Laguna Agate is found in an area covering roughly four square miles in a remote mountain range in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.
Laguna Agate is said to help bind groups tightly together, and would greatly benefit educators, counselors, and professional coordinators. It also thought to stimulate the imagination and inspiration of writers and artists, and has the power of weaving complex themes into a work of art, as well as to enhance mental function by improving concentration, perception, and analytical abilities.
