Robert Michael acquired several Red Helenite crystals and faceted all of them into various shapes and sizes, including these two checkerboard pattern 10x8mm oval gems weighing approximately 3 carats each. He then set the gems in Sterling Silver Post Earrings.
Helenite is a man-made gemstone created from the volcanic rock of Mount St. Helens, Washington. This is accomplished by fusing the volcanic ash at 2700 degrees.
