Medium Favosite Bear Earrings
Material: Known as the Honeycomb Coral, Favosites are a fossilized coral similar to the Petoskey, growing in the same time period and area. Tabulate coral grew upwards, forming mounds that look like honeycombs. Visually, the main difference between a Favosite and a Petoskey is the size of the cells. Favosite cells are smaller and resemble a snakeskin while Petoskeys have larger cells that look like turtle backs. We hand select our material for their best pattern and color to use in each piece. Bail and all metal parts used are sterling silver.
