Lovely jadeite twists are the focal element of these 2" dangle earrings with 14kt gold-fire earwires. They are accompanied by rectangular freshwater pearls and dyed potato freshwater pearls for balance. Nephrite jade and jadeite are both considered "jade", though they different minerals. Jadeite, a pyroxene, is more granular than fibrous in appearance than nephrite, an amphibole with waxy luster, and jadeite is the type of jade treasured by Mesoamericans (Olmecs, Mayans, Aztecs, Incas). Jadeite was used in masks and ritual items, and a piece of jadeite was placed in the mouth of a deceased nobleman to serve as his heart in the afterlife. Cost: $56.00 USD
