Polished Lewisian is framed in a beautiful 925 sterling silver traditional Celtic 'Mother & Child Knot' design. Earrings each measure approximately 24x8x5mm, not including ear hooks. Earrings come with a Two Skies presentation box and a colourful 'Lewisian' story card.
This listing is for one (1) pair of earrings. We have several of these pairs, all so similar that we felt the photos represented all fairly - therefore you may not receive the actual set in the photographs, but one very similar, of no less quality or size than the one pictured. The Lewisian in each set is of a similar shade of red as the set photographed, although every stone will display its own unique subtle characteristics.
At Two Skies, we think that "To own a piece of Scottish Lewisian is to own a piece of Scotland itself. By purchasing this beautiful piece you are connected not just to Scotland but to its age old traditions and folklore."
Lewisian Celtic Knot Sterling Silver Earrings
Lewisian comes from the Isles of Lewis, Harris and North Highlands. It is collected from the ancient bedrock of Scotland and is one of the oldest rocks in the world, up to 3 billion years old (3,000,000,000 years!). It is a unique composition of many minerals including Feldspar, Epidote and Quartz, all of which are part of the "Lewisian Gneiss" complex. Lewisian has been treasured for thousands of years by the clans of Scotland. It was used by the Megalithic cultures to construct monuments such as the Callanish stone circle on the Isle of Lewis
