The Kyanite gets its' name from the Greek word 'kuanos' or 'kyanos', which means 'deep blue', alluding to its typical blue colour. However, in addition to blue, kyanite can also be colourless, white, grey, green, orange or yellow. Known mining sites include Australia, Kenya, India, Birma and Italy.

The verdelite is a beautiful green gem, also known as the green tourmaline. The first recorded tourmaline was a green crystal discovered in 1554 by a Spanish explorer, nevertheless tourmalines was confused with other gems until the 1800s, when it was recognised as a group of its own. Known mining sites include Brazil, Madagascar and Tanzania.

The term chalcedony is derived from the name of the ancient Greek town Chalkedon in Asia Minor from where the ancients obtained the stone. Known mining places include Saudi Arabia, Uruguay, India and Brazil.

Known mining sites of carnelian include Egypt, Colombia and China. Carnelian is one of the oldest known gemstones. It was widely used in ancient Rome, Egypt, Greece and Babilon. But also Napoleon was know to have a carnelian seal from Egypt.

Olivines are found near volcanoes but also on meteorites that orbit near Mars and Jupiter and on the Moon and Mars. In 2011,a NASA telescope observed sparkling green olivine crystals falling through a cloud of gas near a developing star. It was hypothesised that air currents raised freshly crystallised specks of olivine from the surface of the star into the atmosphere to make it drop down in an effect similar to rain. Known mining sites include Eifel in Germany, the Canary Islands, Myanmar, Arizona, and New Mexico in the United States.

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.
