These Pinolite crystal earrings were hand carved by me from raw stone. Pinolite aka Pinolith is a crystal that combines Magnesite, Dolomite and Graphite and forms into little kernel type shapes. Colours range from patterns with grey to black and white. This stone is rare and up until recently was only known to be found in Austria. Recently here in British Columbia a lot was found by George and Mitch who were searching for gold near the city of Golden (thus coined Golden Pinolite). As these recent turned miners try and get their crystals out into the world, please take a look at their website for spheres or other shapes you may like, at www.goldenpinolite.ca. Please chose which pair you would like upon checkout (see last image for reference). I hand carve all stones, and use 925 sterling silver studs. Epoxy binds the stone and silver in place!
