Victorian Malachite Torpedo Earrings
Malachite is gorgeous. It's also poisonous and can damage your lungs if you inhale tiny particles of it, like dust from polishing or cutting it. There's absolutely no danger if you wear it, so don't be afraid of these 18k gold earrings, made around 1870. Spectacular, rare, with granulation and gold swagging chains.
18k gold (tests), malachite
2 7/8" length measured from the top of the ear wire
1837 — 1901
