I am selling this piece as-is. I broke one of the turquoise while setting it (see pics, 2nd stone from the top) The pieces are in the setting securely, so I am not concerned about them falling out and the crack basically looks like part of the stone matrix. This is a great chance to scoop up a deal!
Trilobites are an extinct marine arthropod that lived from about 521 million to 252 million years ago, making them one of the most successful animals ever to live on Earth. There were over 17,000 different species and their fossils are found in ancient seabeds worldwide. The specimen used to make these earrings is an Elrathia Kingii trilobite from Utah which lived during the middle Cambrian - about 513 to 501 million years ago!
