These beautiful Lavender Moon Amethyst Quartz Earrings feature faceted 6 mm gemstones (approx. 1 carat each). Lavender Quartz changes color depending on the light and conditions, going from a light purple to a pale blue color. It is truly enchanting!Â Â Lavender Quartz comes from the Boquira Mine in Brazil. This mine opened in 1956 and is currently no longer producing, so this beautiful stone will become increasingly rare as the supplies available are purchased.

The posts of these earrings measure 12 mm (approximately .5 inches) long. They come complete with sturdy sterling silver clutch backs.

The history of pierced earrings tracks back to the Middle East, as early as 3,000 B.C.. They were originally intended to provide strangers with a quick and easy clue as to the wearer's religious, political or tribal identity. Post earrings, which became popular in Europe during the Middle Ages, have remained one of the leading earring styles for centuries.
