Soft Stone (Hemimorphite)

About this design:

Hi ladies,
Here's a simple linear earring that showcases a stone you don't see very often. Hemimorphite is only a 4.5 on the hardness scale. I just love it's color. I suppose it should be used in only earrings and necklaces ?


Hemimorphite squares,SS Melon beads,heads pins,and SP earwires from Lima.

    Nancy, so glad you posted your beautiful earrings. I’ve never heard of hemimorphite; I must live under a rock :) Very nice design using those melon beads that I love. Off to check “hemimorphite”!

    That color in the stone gorgeous. I’ve heard of hemimorphite but I’ve only seen pictures. I may have to get some one of these days…..when I run out of other beads. :D

    Thanks Ladies. Always glad when I introduce anyone to a pretty new stone. It comes in several colors. Thought these were too pretty to be combined with anything else.

    Thanks Ladies! Kat…you’re right about the stones. If you look closely,you can see these have a flaky look,but I guess that’s common for the structure of this mineral.Such a neat-o color.
