Natural Malachite Stone and Copper – Earrings | Tinklet Jewelry

Pretty, raw malachite is transformed into this adorable pair of earring studs. The lush green of the stone is simply beautiful against the copper that hugs it into place. They are small and dainty, easy to coordinate them with any ensemble from business to casual wear.

Interesting tidbits about this stone:
• It is said that malachite offers wisdom and typically referred to the stone of transformation.
• Malachite helps bring energy and focus.
• Believed to cleanse and purify, removing emotional blockages and opening your heart to new experiences.

Lightweight and comfortable. The copper has been sealed in two very light coats of resin and a final coat of renaissance wax to slow down the natural patina; the posts are sterling silver.
This is the perfect gift for someone who loves stones or just prefers a minimalist look. All our products ship in a small black box for gift giving. Treat yourself or someone you love, to a personal gift from Tinklet.

These earrings are made to order, please allow for slight differences.

Thank you for visiting our little shop!
IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling silver by
  • Keep sterling silver in airtight packages, (Ziplocs should work fine)
  • Use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals. We use the tabs below and now include (2 - 4) tabs with copper and sterling silver purchases.

 tarnish tabs
  • Store metals in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.

To maintain the shine or antiquing: 
• Keep your copper jewelry clean
• Store it in an airtight container or bag away from heat and moisture
• Wipe regularly with a polishing cloth to prevent dirt build-up

Additional Information:

PLEASE NOTE: When copper comes in contact with human skin and can interact with air, perspiration and other chemicals, such as bath soaps, body lotions, and makeup, and  sunscreen, the oxidation (patina) process can accelerate and that causes the copper to turn brownish, green or bluish-green, and stain the skin of some individuals

This reaction will vary according to an individual's body chemistry, both in how long it takes for the green discoloration to form and in how pronounced the color becomes.
Some people, such as myself, experience no discoloration at all, other people maybe not so much.
It is important to note that the discoloration is not harmful to your health, nor is it anywhere near permanent and is easily washed off with soap and water. If not washed off, it is normally absorbed by the body overnight.

Because this potential reaction is not to be unexpected by customers, we do not offer Refunds if the reason is "Because It turns my skin green."
