Peruvian opals are usually coloured from pale sky blues to rich aquas and turquoise, like the Caribbean Sea. It Is also the Peruvian national stone since it it only found in the Andes, in Peru.

The rose quartz is a symbol of beauty and love, especially altruistic love. Rose quartz has already been known for thousands of years, it was always used in jewellery as well as a material for carving, among others in China, India and Egypt. The name quartz originated from the Saxon word Querkluftertz, meaning cross-vein ore. Known mining places include Namibia, Brazil, Madagascar and Kenya.

Aquamarines symbolise love and purity. The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin words for water and sea, due to its amazing clear crystal blue colour. Known aquamarine mining sites include Brazil, Nigeria, Madagascar, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Iolite is mined in India, China, Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Brazil. Iolite has different colors in different directions in the crystal. This property helped Leif Eriksson and the other legendary Viking explorers that went far out into the Atlantic Ocean to determine the exact position of the sun, and thus navigate safely to the new world and back.

Prehnite is the first gemstone named after a person. It was named in honor of Colonel Hendrik Von Prehn, the Dutch mineralogist credited with its discovery in the 1700's in South Africa. Also, prehnite was the first mineral to be named and described from South Africa. The majority of prehnite deposits have very small crystals - these are found in Scotland, South Africa and the United States.

The name “pyrite” comes from the Greek words pyrites lithos, meaning “stone which strikes fire”. The ancient Greeks discovered, that when a hard object was struck with pyrite  sparks were produced. In times gone by, pyrite was used to spark gunpowder in firearms. Pyrites are mined, among others, in Spain, Italy, Peru and Chile.

Due to the fact that each pair of Elfjoy earrings is hand-made, as a single copy, made of natural stones, it may be slightly different from the one shown in the picture. This does not mean, however, that it will be any less charming.
