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. 

I have combined them sterling silver accents on sterling silver wiring and sterling silver leverbacks. As shown on leverbacks these are about 2.5".

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 a one of a kind piece and a rare material. 

Your earrings will arrive beautifully giftboxed.
