The jade is translucent when held to a light and appears to have a mossy pattern. It’s beautiful green jade found in Wyoming where I bought a large chunk from a miner, sawed it, shaped it and polished it into these drops. I carved them thin to bring out the dark green color. These are delicate but strong earrings and I hammered a glittering silver accent to hold them to the handmade ear wire. I’ve drilled each one with a tiny drill bit and made a tiny rivet to hold that hammered silver accent.
The jade is approximately 1 1/4″ long.
