SUMMER TURTLE Olive Jade Earrings with Turquoise

SUMMER TURTLE Olive Jade Earrings with Turquoise

Summer is a favorite time of year and is reflected in the spirit of these earrings with Olive Jade, African turquoise and Turquoise Magnesite beads. The little turtle dangles along in cheerful sunny silver metal.
OLIVE JADE- Olive jade isn't actually a jade, but a serpentine with colors varying from a deep olive green to a light avocado. Most serpentine is often mistakenly named jade.

For hundreds of years, many Native Americans, including the Pomo people of California, crafted magnesite into beads used as jewelry and currency. Magnesite beads were considered quite valuable and were traded individually, instead of by the strand like most money beads.

These earrings will be fun for your casual weekend and measure 2 1/4" in total length.
