Trapeze style earrings focus on a 5/8 inch piece of beautifully “marbled” white howlite suspended by a silver-plated chain. They dangle 1.5 inches from sterling silver french hook ear wires.
Your “if I’m ever on Jeopardy” trivia: Howlite was discovered in Nova Scotia in 1868 when miners in a gypsum quarry, who found it to be a nuisance, alerted Henry How (a chemist, geologist, and mineralogist) to the unknown mineral. It was given the name “howlite” by James Dwight Dana shortly thereafter. Which is much catchier than How’s original name of silico-boro-calcite.
