Every skull is cut from natural Norwegian Larvikite, so each and every skull will have its own unique character and inclusions.

✩Natural Norwegian Larvikite Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
The name "Larvikite" originates from the Larvik Fjord region in Norway, where this type of igneous rock is found. It is also sometimes known as "Black Moonstone", "Norwegian Moonstone" or "Black Labradorite" and although they sometimes look similar and have some related qualities, they are not the same stone. Larvikite is also commercially known as "Blue Pearl Granite".

Mystic Lore:
Chakras - Base Chakra
Zodiac - Aquarius
Intuitive sources say Larvikite carries a mysterious magical energy which stimulates inner visions and enhances psychic abilities. It is said to allow one to see the past, including past lives, and to travel psychically through the dimensions. Its strong connection with Earth energies and Nature spirits. It is said to enhance youthfulness and vitality. Larvikite is a protective and grounding stone.

The hand forged Sterling Silver ear-wire/hoops are suitable for regular/normal pierced ears, they are made from 0.8mm wire which I have lightly hammered for spring and texture.
*Due to the integral design of the beads and ear-wires a direct swap for non-pierced finding is not available. But if you like this design I could make you something very similar with a non-pierced ear-clip (the non-pierced findings would be silver plated).
*These earring hoop finding can be worn through a gauged tunnel, I have tried this style of ear-wire trough my own 8mm tunnels and they look fabulous and hang fantastic.

See the last two photos for a few examples of this design in other gem stones, or if none are listed message me and I will make some for you. I'm always happy to make jewellery in custom metal and crystal/stone colours.

Please message me if you are interested in any variations (ear cuffs, single earrings etc.)

Your purchase will come gift wrapped in a lovely organza bag, acid free coloured/patterned tissue paper (colour+patterns may vary depending on season/item) and a sturdy outer packing mini corrugated cardboard box, ready to give as a loving gift to someone special or for a treat for yourself.
If you have any special requests, please ask.

✩The hand photo✩
Meet Mephisto the measuring hand, he will help show you the rough scale of the jewellery. The hand is exactly the same size as my own hand (I’m an average UK ladies size 7 glove).

If you like these earrings see my other listings for a beautiful matching necklace or request a custom design if none are listed. Please message me if you are interested in matching items.
