This sterling silver necklace and earring set features raw and polished chrysocolla, larimar, and blue topaz gemstones.
Chrysocolla is often found in copper mines, along with turquoise, azurite, and sometimes with malachite or lapis. It is among the most colorful in the mineral world, however they are becoming scarcer as copper mines seem to be closing around the world. Chrysocolla is said to aid in preventing digestive and arthritic ailments. It is also said to alleviate guilt and tension.
Larimar is a volcanic stone, formed over millions of years in volcanic "chimneys" in the Dominican Republic. It is believed to promote openness, broaden perceptions and stimulate brain activity. It is also believed to help with problems of the chest, throat or head.
Topaz has been prized as a gemstone throughout the ages, and comes in a variety of colours, including yellow, brownish-yellow, pink, green, orange, colorless and blue. Blue topaz may be found along the western coast of North America but the primary source remains South America and Russia. Some believe that blue topaz will aid in tissue regeneration and enhance the metabolism. They also believe it may enhance self confidence and may help one to gain wisdom and insight more easily.
