Milky Quartz Earrings // Local Southeast AK Mined Crystals
This necklace features Milky Quartz points that were mined right here in southeast Alaska! These Quartz points were mined near Port Snettisham, just a few miles south of Juneau, AK.
I love using as many locally sourced materials as possible, so I was very excited to get my hands on some locally mined Milky Quartz points!
These come on copper ear hooks. If you prefer hypoallergenic stainless steel ear hooks, just let me know upon purchase and I’ll swap the ear hooks out for you!
See last photo for size reference.
All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on this necklace has been coated with a protective varnish to extend the life of the natural copper shine. There are many easy techniques to bring back the lustrous copper shine such as a simple rub of a jewelry cloth, soaking in vinegar, soaking in lemon or lime juice, and even using ketchup!
Copper is an excellent conductor of energy, from electricity to the mystical subtle energies emanating from higher planes. Copper is said to enhance and transmit thoughts, even over long distances. Copper also enhance the properties of the other crystals around it, so using copper in conjunction with other stones is highly beneficial to the wearer.
Quartz is one of my favorite crystals to work with because it enhances the energy of the crystals it’s paired with, as well as allowing you to benefit from the amazing qualities of quartz itself. Quartz is known as the “master healer” and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It balances and revitalizes the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. It is associated with the Crown Chakra. Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory.
Electroforming is a very time intensive process that produces unique results with each piece having it’s own beautiful textured characteristics. Each piece takes 24-48 hours just to create the copper plating, and days of prep work before and after receiving that beautiful copper energy. Lots of love and attention goes into each of my copper electroformed pieces, and I hope you enjoy them!
