Considered a gift from Copacati, the Inca goddess of the lake, rich blue-green amazonite is mined near Huancayo in Peru's central highlands. Today a group of artisans uses this ancient material to craft versatile accessories with a deep connection to Inca creation myth and the power of the waters. Each stone bears the marks of the earth in which it was formed and will therefore vary in veining pattern and color. Each is traced with a sterling silver bezel, believed in Peruvian mythology to be the tears of the moon. Handmade in Peru.

          I love dangle earrings and these are the perfect length. I am stylish beyond belief because I bought the entire matching set! I enjoy wearing the excellent products that are offered through the National Geographic Store.
          Thank you kindly.

            Comments about Peruvian Copacati Amazonite Earrings:

            These are very pretty earrings but they feel a bit like the hollywood Western town in that they are missing the back. The very pretty stone is on a very thin square of silver. As long as they don't get turned around (they seem to stay forward) they will be fine, but it is a little unusual.
