Tourmaline Chip Earrings

Simple chip style earrings made from varying sizes of tumbled tourmaline stones and hung on surgical steel gunmetal French-style ear wires. Tourmaline is the alternate birthstone for October. A fascinating stone, tourmalines come in a huge variety of color, the gemstone varieties have been misidentified as rubies and emeralds even. One unusual property of Tourmaline is that when warmed or rubbed it will attract bits of paper, lint, and ash to it from charged static electricity. Benjamin Franklin used this gem in his studies on electricity.

These earrings hang just slightly longer than 1 inch.
