Insouciant Studios "Marine" earrings handmade from natural blue amazonite, luminescent labradorite, African blue opal, and brass starfish charms with brass construction and sealed brass earwires. The African blue opal used in these earrings is almost entirely matrix, selected for the nice shades of gray and taupe, and for the sea-floor appearance of the stone.

About the Materials:
Amazonite is a blue-green variety of Microcline Feldspar (KALSi3O8) with a hardness of 6 on the Mohs scale. It has a pearly or vitreous/ translucent luster. Microcline feldspar occurs in white and salmon pink, and is a closely related polymorph of the minerals orthoclase (same chemical formula, slightly different crystal structure) and sanidine.
