✩Golden Obsidian✩
Golden Obsidian (also called Gold Sheen Obsidian) is a natural volcanic glass. This type of obsidian occurs when gas bubbles from the original lava flow are trapped in the obsidian as it is forming. The impurities of the gasses cause a golden sheen to occur, giving the obsidian a golden appearance when the light his it. It is quite difficult to photograph this mobile golden sheen, but I have included several photos from different angles to try show it.

✩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 earring would help 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.

These earrings come with very secure lever back findings in a bright butter gold colour (as pictured) which are suitable for pierced ears. But can be replaced (free of charge) with:
*large kidney wires, suitable for wearing though gauged tunnels, or simply if you prefer a longer earring (this will add approximately 2cm to the overall length).

For a small extra charge, I can replace the current ear-wires with:
*non-pierced/clip-on findings.
*ear-wire made from solid Niobium in a "fish/shepherds" hook style.
Niobium is physiologically inert and thus hypo-allergenic. For this reason, niobium is found in many internal medical devices. Niobium can also be electrically heated and anodised, resulting in a wide array of colours using a process known as reactive metal anodising, which is useful in making jewellery. Its natural colour is a silvery grey, in this instance is anodised to a yellow gold colour.
Niobium is an excellent choice for anyone with sensitive skin, especially for those allergic to nickel, or the metals added to 925 Silver or 9ct Gold alloys.

Please choose the ear finding from the drop down menu.

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).
