This reminds me of a colorful landscape. : ) . These may be cross-posted on etsy. Please just buy one pair as there is only one pair exactly like these. 

Wearable art from nature. This is a very rare pair of earrings as they're made from 20 million year old petrified wood from Indonesia. The wood has opalized to create this magnificent gemstone specimen. This feels like gemstones feel, not like wood. 

I have placed them on golden bronze hoops and 14k gold filled earwires with a faceted quartz teardrop stones. As shown on French Ball earwires these are about 2". Please choose your earwire preference. The default style for SHOPS on Instagram is the pair shown. 

How was this formed?

Indonesia is a volcanic island chain that is currently active and this volcanic activity produces a wide array of unusual minerals and rocks. When wood is buried by volcanic ash and silica is mobilized from the ash, the silica will penetrate into the wood and replace the grains of the woodOpal is a hydrated silica. This is how petrified wood is formed. 

This is a one of a kind piece and a rare material. 

Your earrings will arrive beautifully giftboxed.
