Scallop Oval Studs with Csarite

Regular price $360.00

These feminine dainty studs feature a scalloped oval inspired by dainty crochet edging and feature a central oval gemstone. The back of the earrings are open to the back of the gemstone.

They are crafted from Argentium sterling silver and are hand carved, cast, and fabricated. They showcase brilliant faceted 6X4mm oval Csarite and each earring is 1/2" tall by 3/8" wide.

Csarite has the ability to change colors when in different lighting conditions. It changes from green to brown to yellow to pink. It's extremely hard to photograph to show all it's varied beauty and sparkle!

Csarite is ethically mined and locally supported in the Anatolian mountains of Turkey. CSARITE® products have a direct and positive affect on the lives of its miners. All of the employees are housed and fed on site and paid over and above the average earnings for miners in the region. Fully insured, every one of our employees works in safe working conditions which are subject to regular government and environmental inspection.

They also donate food supplies every six months to more than 100 homes in the villages surrounding the mine, their local communities and their schools.

CSARITE® also has a positive impact on its natural surroundings, as their entire underground operations were designed from the outset to allow minimal impact to the surface of the mountains. With fewer trees felled and no major excavations necessary, even the water waste we produce is collected and removed by vehicle to ensure zero soil contamination.

And for the few trees which do require felling, we ensure that they are professionally handled and brought to the ground by the Forestry department, whom we voluntarily fund to plant more than 10 trees for every one cut down.

CSARITE® is a precious gemstone so exceptional, it has been identified as a previously unknown variety of diaspore. Only found in one place in the world, CSARITE® quality Turkish diaspore is meticulously excavated at a height of more than 3,000 feet in the remote foothills of the Anatolian mountains in Turkey.
