Shiva's Eye earrings
|Back by popular demand! Intact Eye of Shiva shell earrings, double sided as visible in image.|
In the wild Shiva's Eye is the natural protective “front door” of the turban snail. At the end of the sea snail's natural life, this protective cover breaks away and sinks to the sea bed to become a sought-after treasure, brought up from the sea bed by divers to be used in jewelry. The exact shape of the spiral is unique from shell to shell. The color of the spiral varies from beige to deep green, depending on the sea snail's diet, while the background often remains pearly white.
This is illustrated by the image to the left. Shiva Eyes have different patterns on the front and back, the spiraling 'eye' shown on the left and the green-brown 'eye' on the right.
Natural Shiva Eyes is made up of calcium carbonate, just like genuine pearls.
