Description

These pierced Amethyst with Meteorite Pendant Earrings are the final frontier of accessories. Unique and striking, they are handmade with a piece of meteorite that landed in Campo del Cielo, Argentina. Delicate amethyst stones add a hint of sparkle, and the pair dangles from sterling silver ear wires.

This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
