Rich, warm colors of copper and amber set the stage for cool green Serpentine beads in this pair of Green Serpentine Gemstone Dangle Earrings. The gemstone’s mottled green color resembles snakeskin, giving it its name and meaning. The stone is linked with the powerful regenerative energy of this prehistoric reptile; a transformation of rebirth that’s reflected in the snake shedding its skin. The ancients revered the snake and its legendary symbolism. Hermes, the father of alchemy, used the symbol of two intertwining snakes around a sword to represent healing.
The amber beads are Czech fire-polished and provide a bit a sparkle in contrast to the matte copper seed beads. A few translucent, rich brown beads tie everything together. Topped with copper ear wires, this pair is striking.
