Unusually large and exceptonal quality Shattuckite "fancy" hand-cut cabochons stop traffic in these Sterling silver earrings. Mottled greens, teals, and blues are why this uncommon stone is so desirable and valuable. "Fancy cut" is the term used for cabochons in shapes that aren't the typical ovals and rounds which are much easier to cut and set. Shattuckite can be difficult to cut so it is unusual to see fancy cut Shattuckites and particularly ones of this size.
An uncommon copper-based mineral from the Shattuck mine in Arizona, similar to Chrysocolla (see pendant listing). Said to be a very powerful stone used to enhance communication and bonding with others.
