Carved from natural fluorite, these unique pendants are drilled horizontally through the ears, making them perfect for pendants and beaded projects. They have back onyx eyes, some may feature banding. Some pieces have flat backs similar to a cabochon while others are rounded. The drilled holes are roughly 2-2.5mm wide. Each pendant is roughly 44-46mm tall.
Believed by ancient civilizations to house rainbows, fluorite has been renowned for centuries for its beautiful range of colors. Some fluorite, when exposed to UV light, reacts by glowing and can even maintain luminescence for several minutes. While pure fluorite is actually colorless, impurities in the stone from other minerals give it its wide range of colors.
