The large stone (16mm) is called Eagle's Eye. It has the shine and brilliance of Tiger or Cat's Eye but the coloring is really interesting. Veins of gold, rust and blackish blue run through this multi-grey stone. It is fascinating to look at. The smaller (8mm) faceted stone above is a smoky quartz. Everything is dressed in sterling silver and the whole earring hangs just slightly below 2" on the ear. I love this pair and it will be hard to part with. It is neutral and can be worn with just about anything. They are fairly light on the ear lobe that I find them extremely comfortable. This pair is a steal at $10.00 and sure to please.
