This set is made of magnesite and pewter with sterling silver ear wires. Magnesite is magnesium carbonate. In its natural state, the stone is whitish in color with a cream or brown matrix (lines running through it). It is often dyed to look like turquoise, as in this necklace and earring set.
The necklace is 20 inches long, and the earrings measure 2 inches.
