Stalactite Emerald Earrings |Uranus Collection
- Model: ALYA 110
The cave you fear to enter, holds the treasure you seek.
Do you know how stalactites are formed? The process is yet another miracle of Earth. Stalactites begin with a single drop of mineral-rich water formed on the roof of a cave. As each drop of water drops from the ceiling of the cave, it leaves behind the thinnest ring of a calcite deposit. As more and more drops form and fall, more rings are left behind. These then build upon one another over time, to create a stunning column hanging from the ceiling known as a stalactite. The Earring captures that power of moving forward, letting go of past fears and living in the present courageously with an open mind to new possibilities.
has been a source of fascination and reverence in many cultures for over six
thousand years, sold in the markets of Babylon as early as 4,000 B.C. It was a
stone worshipped by the Incas, believed by the Chaldeans to contain a Goddess,
and was highly honored for its spiritual power and beauty. Emerald was
considered a symbol of eternal life in ancient Egypt, a gift of Thoth, the God
of wisdom, and was a favorite jewel of Queen Cleopatra. The Emerald mines in
Upper Egypt, rediscovered a hundred years ago, are some of the oldest in the
world and were called Cleopatra’s mines for her love of the stone.
