Water Tribe Ring
Some of us are more drawn to fire or earth, but this ring is all water tribe. The swirling blues and greens of malachite and azurite are set into a silver shield on a comfortable half-round band.
sterling silver, azurite-malachite
Malachite and azurite get their striking colors from copper. It forms as liquids containing copper drip through in fractures and cavities inside porous rock such as limestone. Over time and with exposure to oxygen, the copper turns blue (azurite) and green (malachite) is formed with layers stacked on top of each other, in concentric circles and nodules.
