Murano aventurine earrings

The earrings made with aventurine glass derive from a process invented in Murano around 1620. It is a brown-colored glass paste that comes in the form of blocks. Inside it is immersed brilliant specks of copper with brilliant metal oxides that create an effect similar to that of aventurine quartz. It is still used by the “perlere” (the producers of pearls), ground in crushers of various thicknesses called “pestaccio” or “spolvero” or pulled into “peaks”, of thin metal wires used for decorations.
