|Blue Topaz, Mother of Pearl,
and Chalcedony Earrings
with Sterling Silver
Dimensions: 7 inches long adjustable to 8 inches long
Topaz is a mellow, empathetic stone that directs
energy to where it is needed most. It soothes, heals,
stimulates, recharges, remotivates, and aligns the
meridians of the body.
Chalcedony is a nurturing stone that promotes
brotherhood and goodwill and enhances group
stablility. It absorbs negative energy and then
dissipates it to prevent onward transmission.
Throughout history, the pearl, with its warm inner glow
and shimmering iridescence, has been one of the most
highly prized and sought after gems. In ancient Rome,
pearls were considered the ultimate symbol of wealth
and social standing. The Greeks held the pearl in high
esteem for both its unrivaled beauty and its
association with love and marriage.
A natural pearl begins life as a foreign object, such as
a parasite or piece of sand, that accidentally becomes
lodged in the oyster's soft inner body where it cannot
be expelled. In an effort to ease this irritant, the
oyster's body takes defensive action and begins to
secrete a smooth, hard crystalline substance around
the irritant in order to protect itself. This substance is
called nacre. As long as the irritant remains within its
body, the oyster will continue to secrete layer upon
layer of nacre around the irritant. After a few years, the
irritant will be totally encased by the silky crystalline
coatings. The result is the lovely and lustrous gem
called a pearl.
Cultured pearls are formed by oysters in an almost
identical fashion, except that man surgically implants
the irritant - a small piece of polished shell - in the
oyster, rather than leaving it to chance. The process
from then on is the same as with natural pearls.
