✩Black Obsidian✩
Black Obsidian is a volcanic glass. On first glances it appears as a rich opaque black, but when held up to a light it has an occasional areas of translucency, showing rich browns or dark greens. Obsidian may also contain patterns of gas bubbles remaining from the lava flow. These bubbles can produce interesting effects such as a golden sheen.

✩Obsidian Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
*For fans of Games of Thrones this Obsidian is also know as "Dragon Glass", although I'm not sure how these earrings would help in dealing with White Walkers!
*Since ancient times, obsidian has been used in making various tools such as arrowheads, knives, and saws. Today, some of the sharpest medical scalpels in the world or made from it, because of how thinly and smoothly the blade can be sharpened.
*Obsidian is a very strong gem stone of protection, worn by ancient warriors to ensure both protection in battle and also that they maintain their high standards of honour by being honest, sincere and truthful.
*Polished Obsidian was also used to make scrying mirrors for foretelling the future.

✩Rainbow Moonstone Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
*Moonstone has been used in jewellery for thousands of years. The Romans admired moonstone and believed that it came from the rays of the moon made solid.
*It has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers.
*More recently it was a popular choice for jewellers in the Art Nouveau period.
*Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon and the Mother Goddess. Her strength lies in her gentleness, and her ability to experience, process, and neutralise her feelings.
*An amulet of protection for travellers, and is known as the "Traveller's Stone" for the protection it affords, especially at night.
*In Europe was believed to reconcile estranged lovers and also as a gift for lovers to rekindle passion.
*Moonstone, and because of its uplifting quality of hope, has long been worn as a talisman to enhance the personality and as a channel for prophecy.

✩Variations/findings✩
The hand forged Sterling Silver ear-wire/hoops are suitable for pierced ears, they are made from 0.6mm wire. This will easily fit regular piercings but if you would prefer a thicker 0.8mm ear-wire, please add a note when you buy, I will make and replace this for you at no extra charge.
*If you like this design I could make you something very similar with a non-pierced finding (the non-pierced findings would be silver plated).
*These earring hoop finding can be worn through gauged tunnels, I have tried this style of ear-wire trough my own 8mm metal tunnels, they fit and hang wonderfully.
Please message me if you are interested in any variations (ear cuffs, single earrings, thick hand forged 2mm Aluminium earwires etc.)
